When does the firm actually pay me the bar exam fee/stipend?

Postby mpaasky » Mon Feb 10, 2014 10:08 pm

Hi All,
As part of the hiring package, I have been offered a bar study stipend in additions to the bar registration fee and review course. As you can see, I won't actually start working until several months after taking the bar. Do you know if I have to wait until my first actual paycheck before seeing this money? Or, do firms normally write people a check earlier, before the actual employment starts? if so, do you know when do they usually send out the money(s)?
For your references, I am taking the May-July course, for the July exam, and my starting date in late Oct/early Nov.
Thanks,
Mpaasky

Once you've actually been hired by the firm, you should feel comfortable asking them about this. You already accepted the job, you're just looking for clarification on your benefits
