Qualifications for Admission to the Bar

In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law has not made a determination that its curriculum meets/does not meet the State educational requirements for licensure or certification in any of the fifty states or DC. Current and prospective students are encouraged to review our ABA Bar Passage Outcomes (pdf) on our ABA Disclosures page.
