All students should be aware that in order to practice law, it is necessary to be admitted to a state Bar after graduation from law school. Each state Bar has character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission. Students are advised to contact the Committee of Bar Examiners in the state(s) in which they intend to practice for information regarding these requirements. Admission to and successful completion of law school does not ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements for admission to the Bar of California or any other state. The National Conference of Bar Examiners website contains information on state bar exams, admission requirements, and links to most state Bar offices.
