Presentation on Bar Exam Applications for 3Ls

Vanessa Williams from the Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar will make a presentation about the bar exam application process specially for NIU College of Law 3L students on Wednesday, January 25th at noon in the Riley Courtroom. This is a brown bag – bring your lunch. She will discuss the application process and be able to answer your questions. This is your one chance to talk face-to-face with someone from IBOAB – so you are strongly encouraged to attend.

While it may still be too early to submit your application, you should rough it up BEFORE the presentation. Go to www.ilbaradmissions.org and print off a hard copy of the application to use as your working copy (you will submit most of your application online). You can print off a copy by hitting “Information & Applications” on the homepage.

The application is a time-consuming process. You are encouraged to get it done over winter break. You do not want to be running around on 02/15 (the due date) trying to track down information for the application!
