Assuming that I pass the MPRE in November and get my results in December, does anyone know when I could be sworn into the bar?
Would it be when the February bar takers are having their ceremony?
Please share your story if you've been in my shoes.
Thank you.


In my jurisdiction you definitely do not have to wait for a swearing in ceremony to start practicing... you can have any notary administer the oath and then just sign it, notarize, and send it to the bar. So, I would think that a few days after you pass the MPRE you would recieve the oath in the mail and could send it in.

My understanding is that you can be sworn in anytime after you have completed all the requires steps.

In my case I passed the February CBX. I passed the MPRE in August, and am still waiting on my background check. As soon as that's done (hopefully!) I'll get sworn in. There are, in California at least a LOT of people who can swear you in, including a notary public.

May I ask which jurisdiction?
I took the Illinois bar. Do you know anything about Illinois?


I think you can find all of this info online. Some states are very relaxed. For NJ, for example, I think all you need is a like a licensed attorney and a bible. My friend posted a pic last year of her husband swearing her in at their house. It could've been a joke, but it was online.

I can't answer your questions, but I just wanted to let you know that I failed the MPRE twice in 2013, the year I graduated from law school. I recently just took the MPRE this August and passed. I listened to the Barbri lectures online and did practice questions from the book and on Themis (but did not listen to Themis lectures) for about two days and that was sufficient. Good luck!
