How to Apply

Jennifer Goldstein, law, MBA, dual degrees
“Georgia State has allowed me to take courses in a variety of subject areas. So in addition to taking classes in areas I already knew interested me, the flexibility has enabled me to explore areas of the law I was unfamiliar with prior to law school.”

Receipt of a law degree does not entitle a graduate to be admitted to the bar. Each state has its own bar registration and admission rules. A number of states require that a student register with the state’s board of bar examiners at the beginning of law study to be eligible to take the bar examination.

Some states prohibit the practice of law by persons who have been convicted of certain criminal offenses. Most states will not admit a person to the bar who has committed a crime of moral turpitude.

The College of Law will attempt to provide students with the information necessary for bar registration; however, the final responsibility rests with each student to ensure that all requirements are met. For information on admissions to the Georgia Bar, visit www.gabaradmissions.org.
