Additional Information

Applying for an accommodation:  If you have a documented disability and wish to take the bar, in any state, reasonable test accommodations may be available. To qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act you must provide evidence that you have an impairment and demonstrate the functional limitation resulting from your impairment that impacts your ability to take the bar. In many states, several additional forms must be filled out in order for an accommodation to be granted. If you are seeking an accommodation, plan to register early for the Bar Exam. In most states your accommodation request materials are submitted with your registration materials by the normal deadlines—but your application may take significantly longer to complete with these additional forms.

Commercial Bar Prep Courses:  BYU Law school strongly encourages students to take and complete a reputable commercial bar preparation course in the months leading up to the bar exam. Several options are available and several companies have a presence on campus. Please see Dean Wendy Archibald for more information about available courses.

Woolley Loan Information:  Woolley Loan monies have been made available to law students to aid in paying for the costs of the bar exam and commercial bar preparation courses. These loans should be requested as you enter your 3L year. Please contact BYU Financial Aid office OneStop Counseling Center with questions (801) 422-7075.

Notary at Law School Information:  Almost all bar applications require at least one signature to be notarized. The law school has two licensed notaries that you may use for this purpose: Dianne Davenport (256B JRCB) and Melanie Coleman (294 JRCB).
