2021 License Renewal
Note: This page is meant to give members a broad overview of the licensing process and requirements directly after admission and beyond. More information about all the requirements listed below, including the corresponding rules, can be found in the rest of the Member Handbook.
The Board of Bar Examiners (an agency of the Supreme Court) administers the bar exam and processes applications for admission.
* Note: During the year of admission, members who have not been admitted in a previous jurisdiction are not required to pay licensing fees or complete MCLE requirements. Members admitted on motion (reciprocity) must pay a prorated licensing fee at the time of admission.
