Did you take the bar exam in July?

You probably have some questions

An image of the scales of justice appears on screen, with a “Q” on the left side of the scale, bringing it slightly down.

We have some answers

An “A” appears on the right side of the scale, balancing it out.

Are there any other tests I need to pass?

Yes! Make sure you’ve completed the Massachusetts Law Component

An image of a scroll appears on screen and then unravels. The text Massachusetts Law Component is at the top of the scroll. The rest of the scroll is filled in with dummy type.

Any person applying  to the Massachusetts bar on or after March 1, 2018 needs to pass the MLC

The image of the scroll from the previous screen remains on screen.  

All July examinees should have email instructions on how to complete the MLC

An image of a desktop computer appears on screen. An image of an envelope with an @ symbol is on the computer’s screen to represent email.  

And you must complete it online

The image of the desktop computer from the previous screen decreases in size and moves to the bottom of the screen. The image of the scroll from previous screens appears at the top of the screen. The scroll then moves into the screen of the desktop computer and becomes a document with the text Massachusetts Law Component at the top of the document. A green check mark appears on the document.

To be sure that your admission is not delayed, the Board of Bar Examiners encourages you to pass the MLC by the first week of October

When do results for the bar exam come out?

Fall leaves drop from the top of the screen and obscure the text.

Results for the July 2018 bar exam will be released in October

An image of a monthly-view calendar appears on screen on the right showing October.

Anyone who didn’t pass can take the next exam in February 2019

Monthly calendar flips quickly and lands on February 2019.

You can file to take the February bar exam starting in October

You’ll receive your bar exam results by email

An image of an envelope with an @ symbol to represent email appears on screen. The envelope opens and a document with the word Pass emerges from the envelope.

If you pass and meet all other requirements, an invitation to a formal admission ceremony will be emailed a few days later

Another document with the word Invitation emerges from the envelope.

When do I get sworn in?

If you passed the bar exam and you’ve met all other requirements, you’ll be sworn in during November

An image of a turkey appears on screen.

You need to be sworn in before you get your license

The turkey from the previous screen is replaced by the image of a hand. The hand then grasps a document to represent being sworn in.

But remember: You must complete the Massachusetts Law Component before you're admitted to the bar

An image of a scroll appears on screen and then unravels. The text Massachusetts Law Component is at the top of the scroll. The rest of the scroll is filled in with dummy type.

f you haven’t already, complete the MLC as soon as possible to be sure your admission is not delayed

A green circle with a document in it appears on screen. The text Massachusetts Law Component is at the top of the document. A green check mark appears on the document.
