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.
Preadmission Online Videos
You can accelerate your success with practical information by completing the PREP course online.
To complete the online course:
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.
