Bar Exam Preparation


From the DC Committee on Admissions:

In light of continued pandemic conditions, recently released recommendations for reopening the District, and the overwhelming demand for seats for the DC Bar Exam, the Court of Appeals has decided to administer a remote DC Bar Exam with questions prepared by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. This remote exam will be administered on October 5th and 6th and will test the same topics as the Uniform Bar Examination.

See the order below for more information.

General Information

Bar admission is regulated by each state's board of bar examiners. Bar requirements are state-specific and vary from state to state, so it's important to check the requirements for the jurisdiction in which you plan to practice law.

About the Multistate Exams

The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) produces five multistate bar examinations. Each state determines which of the tests it will use. States may also have a state-specific component.
