Sitting for the bar exam in Massachusetts

The Board of Bar Examiners administers the bar examination twice each year in February and July and on two (2) consecutive days.

The exam is currently held in two locations - Boston and Springfield, MA. Exact locations and times are subject to change so it is important for petitioners to be aware of the information pertinent to each exam. Details will be available with the Petition for Admission. Massachusetts will begin administering the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) in July 2018. For more information on the UBE, visit the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
