Preface


          This publication is an updated edition of the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Require­
          ments, first published in 1984. It replaces the 2016 edition. The National Conference of Bar
          Examiners and the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar wish to
          thank the state bar admission administrators for their cooperation in furnishing the data.

          The supplemental remarks that follow the charts in this publication reflect an editorial
          decision to leave intact much of the information supplied by bar admission agencies;
          that is, some language consistencies have been forgone in order to preserve the words as
          received from the jurisdictions. Material supplied by each jurisdiction is intended to reflect
          Court rule, not situations under which waivers are granted, unless otherwise indicated.

          We hope that by working closely with the state bar admission administrators in compiling
          and verifying the information contained in this publication, we have produced charts that
          will be useful to everyone concerned with the bar admissions process.

          Because bar admission rules and practices are subject to change, however, this publication
          should be used only as a general guide. Specific, up-to-date answers to questions concern­
          ing bar admissions should be obtained from the bar admission agency in the jurisdiction
          involved. A directory of bar admission agencies begins on page 45.
