State Bar Admissions Requirements

We often enroll students from out of state and one of the questions they often ask is whether or not they can practice in their respective state. The answer to this is addressed by National Conference of Bar Examiners through a comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements.

The 2018 ABA's State Bar Admissions Requirements Guide provides annually updated information on bar admission requirements in all U.S. jurisdictions, including a directory of state bar admission agencies. It is published in collaboration with the American Bar Association and a copy can be reviewed here.
