Dear 3Ls & Full-time L.L.Ms:
If you are interested in taking the July 2017 New York State Bar Exam, the on-line application for the exam is available at http://www.nybarexam.org/. The application is available until April 30. The New York State Board of Law Examiners imposes strict deadlines for applications to take the Bar Exam. Students who do not adhere to the above deadline will not be able to sit for the July 2017 Bar Exam.
While completing the NY bar application you will be asked to answer questions based on the courses you took here at NYU School of Law. This information will be used to create your JD Certificate of Attendance. The Certificate of Attendance will be sent to the Office of Records and Registration for us to certify. Review of your Degree Progress Report, transcript and instructions may be helpful in completing the certificate. Instructions on how to complete the certificate can be found here, http://www.nybarexam.org/forms/JDCertofAttendanceInstructions.pdf.
LLM students who plan on taking the bar will have to submit a Handwriting Sample, NYU State Bar Request Form and the LLM Certificate of Attendance. Review of your transcript and attached instructions may be helpful in completing the certificate. The LLM Certificate of Attendance can be found here, http://www.nybarexam.org/Docs/LLMCertificateofAttendanceForm.pdf.
After April 30, 2017 the NY Bar will send you a personalized Handwriting Sample with your BOLE ID and barcode by email. Please wait to submit all paperwork until you have received the handwriting sample.
At this time, we strongly suggest you read the New York State Board Rule 6000.9 on Fraud, Dishonesty, and Other Misconduct. All applicants who do not comply with this rule will be penalized. This rule and other notices from NYS are available here, http://www.law.nyu.edu/recordsandregistration/barexams/noticefromnysboardoflawexaminers/index.htm.
