Bar Requirements

The rules for admissions to the bars of the various states differ greatly. Some states require applicants for the bar examination to register with the bar examiners at the time they begin their law studies, and to take certain courses while in law school. Some state, including Pennsylvania, require additional examinations (such as the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam) which are given on dates other than the usual bar examination dates. Students assume responsibility to know and comply with these bar requirements and should contact the appropriate bar examiners directly. Students must contact the bar examiners for the states they are interested in directly to obtain requirements, deadlines, and other necessary information.
