The MA Bar Exam

JD Students and Alumni: 

All JD students and alumni applying for the Massachusetts Bar Exam do not need to submit the Law School Certificate.

As a courtesy to our students, Northeastern University School of Law submits the information on the Law School Certificate to the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners for every JD student. The Massachusetts Bar already has your Law School Certificate.

On the Massachusetts Bar Exam Application, any NUSL JD student and alumni can ignore the yes or no question on the application that asks if the Law School Certificate is enclosed.

LLM Students and Alumni:

Please submit the Law School Certificate to Kendra Millay ( in The Office of Academic & Student Affairs.
