Admission Requirements and Lawyer Bar Exam Results


Applicants must complete all of the requirements through the online admissions site. See the New Admittee Process Instructions for more information.

After an applicant has met all the requirements for admission, the applicant will be recommended to the Washington Supreme Court for admission to the practice of law in Washington.  Upon receipt of the admission Order from the Court, the WSBA will assign the new admittee a license number and send the admittee by mail a Bar card and a certificate from the Court.  Applicants are not permitted to practice as a lawyer until the Court signs the Admission Order and the applicant receives the Bar card and license number.
