Qualifications for admission to the bar

In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

Students wishing additional detail regarding this obligation may review the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements, especially Chart II, which covers requirements regarding character and fitness determinations, and the Moral Character and Fitness section of the Code of Recommended Standards for Bar Examiners, which includes examples of issues that might be cause for further inquiry before a bar examining authority decides whether the applicant possesses the character and fitness to practice law. Students may also review the Character and Fitness page on the National Conference of Bar Examiners website and the Bar Admissions webpage of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.
