Be advised that, in addition to your legal education, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar. Before you enroll in any law school, we encourage you to determine what those requirements are in the state or states in which you intend to practice.

In New York State, character and fitness requirements and screening are the jurisdiction of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Department of your residence at the time you apply for admission. To learn more about New York State's character and fitness requirements and process, visit the website of the New York State Board of Law Examiners.
