General information about taking a bar exam ».
For more information visit the Maryland Board of Law Examiners.
If you are interested in taking the bar in another state, the National Conference of Bar Examiners has a website that includes a complete state by state listing of contacts, and other useful information. Visit:
The Carey School of Law does not complete the Certification as to College Education (Pre-Legal) form for the Maryland Bar or similar forms required by other states. That certification must be provided by your undergraduate degree -granting institution. You must contact your undergraduate institution directly.
The Carey School of Law will not complete the Maryland Bar Examination’s Certification of Law School Education Form until after graduation. Because many Character Committee members do not accept forms that are marked "the student is eligible to graduate," the forms will not be sent to the Character Committee's designee until after graduation. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
