Admission Requirements and LPO Exam Results

Applicants must complete all the requirements through the online admissions site prior to admission.

After an applicant has met all the requirements for admission, the applicant will be recommended to the Washington Supreme Court for admission as a LPO. Upon receipt of the admission order from the Court, the WSBA will assign the new admittee a license number; Applicants are not permitted to practice as a LPO until the Court signs the admission order and the applicant receives a license number.

Applicants who have passed the Washington LPO Exam have 12 months from the date of the administration of the examination to complete the new admittee process and be licensed as a LPO.

Note: Passing applicants need to provide additional documentation before they are approved for licensing.

Due to COVID-19:

APR 5(f). The Washington Supreme Court has issued an order temporarily waiving the requirement that the oath be taken in open court. It authorizes judges to administer the oath remotely or virtually using face-time technology. If the judge conducting the swearing-in agrees to conduct this type of process, please email the judge a signed copy of the oath form for his/her signature.  Once all parties have signed the oath form, it is your responsibility to upload a copy of the completed oath to your user home page. Please keep a copy for your records.
