Part 6 – Bar Admission In U.S. States
After you law school you must pass the bar exam in the state you wish to practice. There is no articling or bar admission course. Hence, it takes less time to become a lawyer in the U.S. than it does in Canada. The bar exam is a two or three day exam (depending on the state) and is administered twice a year – in February and in July.
Further information about the requirements for each state may be found at: www.ncbex.org
