It’s never too early to begin thinking about the bar exam. Begin to consider which bar exam(s) you will take upon graduation. In some jurisdictions, a financial advantage will result from registering early in your law school career. Financial penalties may exist for late registration. Requirements regarding registration, application deadlines and costs vary greatly by state. During your 1L year, we encourage you to research the requirements of the two or three jurisdictions in which you are most likely to seek employment upon graduation. Read our Bar Admission Memo to learn more.
