Ca Bar Exam Essay Outlines On Salvation

Most states administer the bar exam twice a year, the last week of February and the last week of July, with applications due approximately 4 months prior to the exam. Some states have earlier deadlines. Below you will find a link to a list of all the state bar examiners in the country. Please check the state in which you plan to practice for its rules and deadlines. 

Most law school graduates take the July exam. Most states do not permit anyone to sit for the bar exam who has not actually graduated from law school.

In addition to registering for the exam, some states (including CA) require you to register as a law student, which, of course, entails an extra fee. Many California law schools urge their students to register as 1Ls because they know their students will practice in California. Since so many of our students do not practice in this state, and since there is no late fee, we wait until your last year to urge you to register. California urges you to register before taking the MPRE.

Most states (including CA and NY) require the MPRE (Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam). The MPRE is administered in November, March, and August of each year. The cost is $70. This two-hour and five minute exam consists of 60 multiple-choice questions. It is much easier than the regular bar exam.

Moral Character Determination

Most states (including CA and NY) require you to apply for a moral character determination. The California application form itself is quite lengthy and calls for a lot of historical information from you. In California, the processing time can range anywhere from 4 – 10 months because it entails checking references going back many years; so, we recommend that you complete the form this semester or soon thereafter. If you delay in filing this application, you run the risk that you may be ineligible to be sworn in next December. New York moral character determinations are done after you take the bar exam.

Many states (including CA) require fingerprints as part of the bar application. California now requires you to submit fingerprints through the live scan system. You can do this at the Stanford Department of Public Safety, 711 Serra Street, Monday through Friday, by appointment only. To get an appointment, call 650 723.9633.
