California Bar

Does anyone know when we're supposed to get our moral fitness stuff done? I heard that we're supposed to already have everything submitted by January at the latest...

Doesn't the California Bar publish application materials containing deadlines and such? Shouldn't a prospective applicant have read and understood those materials while preparing to take the California Bar exam? Good luck on the bar.

thanks for your helpful response.

their materials say "early in the third year of study" but don't really provide much beyond that... i know its no longer "early" anymore, but was just wondering if it was too late. my firm lets us have 6 months after starting work to get sworn in...

My school recommends 8-10 months before you want to be admitted. You want to be admitted in November, so you should be getting it in sometime soon. However, the process is usually about 6 months.

You are not too late but the longer you wait the longer it takes to get cleared sometimes. I applied in January and was cleared by February. I had a friend who applied after she passed the Feb bar last year (so May) and didn't get cleared until end of December. I would recommend doing it by the end of the month if you can. Best of luck.

Do it now. It only takes a couple hours of filling out forms, getting fingerprinted, and $530 bucks.
