The Registrar’s Office houses academic records, official student files and is a valuable resource for students. From processing transcripts and letter requests to the certification of loan deferments, Veteran’s benefits, bar loan applications, bar exam eligibility and Character & Fitness documentation, our well-trained staff provides a myriad of student services.
We also take great pleasure in the conferring of degrees to students who have worked so diligently during their tenure at the Law Center, determining academic awards and honors and participating in the planning of the annual Commencement Exercises.

Bar Exam Information
New York State Bar Exam
The New York State Bar Examination is given each year in February and July. The requirements for taking the New York State Bar examination and for admission to the New York State Bar are available in the Registrar's Office or from the New York State Board of Law Examiners.
The Registrar's Office certifies students' eligibility to sit for the exam based on satisfactory completion of degree requirements. Applications for the New York State Bar Examination may be completed online at the New York State Board of Law Examiners. Contact the Registrar's Office if you need assistance in completing the application. Please pay close attention to filing deadlines.
Each jurisdiction has its own requirements for admission to its bar. Some, for example, require that persons intending to practice law in those states register with a designated state office or official prior to commencing the study of law. Students are encouraged to inquire of the appropriate officials as to applicable requirements. The Registrar's Office also has available the names and addresses of officials responsible for bar examinations and admissions in other jurisdictions.
Most states require examinees to achieve a minimum score on the Multi-State Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) in addition to a passing score on the state Bar Examination in order to be considered for admission to the Bar.
