State Bar Admissions Resources

Each state regulates admission to its bar. Since the requirements for bar admission vary greatly from state to state, students should consult the Bar Admissions Office for a particular state to investigate the requirements for admission to that state's bar.  Students should plan far enough in advance to meet the application deadlines for taking the bar exam.

Links to the Bar Admissions Offices for all 50 states and the District of Columbia are listed below, you may also consult the American Bar Association's Bar Exam Directory.
