Admissions to a State Bar

All students who intend to apply for admission to a state bar should consult with the specific state bar for requirements. Many states require both registration as a law student and a bar exam application. Also, fees for students who are late in registering are often substantially higher. For information pertaining to bar requirements in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the various United States territories, the National Conference of Bar Examiner's website provides links to the various bar admissions offices at www.ncbex.org. For students who intend to seek bar admission in Mississippi, the Mississippi Board of Bar Admissions website is www.mssc.state.ms.us/baradmissions/baradmissions.html.

While MC Law provides information about bar examinations and bar admissions requirements to our students, nevertheless, students have the primary responsibility to acquaint themselves with the requirements of any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission to practice law.
