Preadmission Education Program
You've just passed the bar exam! Congratulations on qualifying for admission to practice law in the State of Washington. You're on your way to becoming a Washington State Attorney. So what's next?
The Preadmission Education Program (PREP) is a prerequisite to applying for licensure in Washington State. By Supreme Court rule, you must complete the free PREP course prior to your admission to practice law. PREP is offered as a series of online videos and, in some cases, as a live seminar at various locations throughout the state.

You can accelerate your success with practical information by completing the PREP course online.

Preadmission Live Seminars
Live seminars build your connections with your legal community and increase your awareness of local practice rules. If you cannot make a live seminar, or there is not one planned in your area, you can complete the PREP course online instead.
