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.

Applicants who have passed the Washington UBE have 40 months from the date of the examination to complete the New Admittee Process and be licensed as a lawyer. Admission by Motion and Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) Transfer applicants have one year from the date of the application submission to become licensed in Washington.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic:

APR 5(f) — The Washington Supreme Court has issued an order temporarily waiving the requirement that the oath be taken in open court and 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, the applicant is responsible to email a copy of the completed oath to admissions@wsba.org. Please keep a copy for your records.
