September Bar Exam

The Alaska bar exam has a limited number of seats available for its September 9 & 10, 2020 administration. Anyone who has already filed his/her application and fee need not reapply.

Applicants may only apply during the time period for which they are eligible.

Tier 1: May 22 - May 29, 2020: Reapplicants from the February 2020 Alaska Bar Exam.

Tier 2: May 30 - June 5, 2020: Applicants who have employment or an offer of employment in Alaska which requires admission to the Alaska Bar Association and can submit verification of that employment. The verification must be submitted at the time of your application.

Tier 3: June 6 - June 11, 2020: Applicants who are Alaska residents or who have spent at least one year living in Alaska. Applicants must submit the name of one person currently living in Alaska who can verify their residency to qualify for placement in Tier 3. Alternatively, applicants can provide confirmation of receipt of the 2019 PFD with the application to verify residency.

Tier 4: June 12 - 15, 2020: All other applicants if seats are available.

Once the number of seats has been reached for each location, that site will be closed. Applicants may request to be placed on a waiting list, handled on a first come, first serve basis.
