Welcome to the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners. We want to provide you with as much information as possible on the bar admission process in Oklahoma.  On this website, you will find:

  • A list of frequently asked questions about seeking admission to the Oklahoma Bar
  • Specific information about registration as a law student
  • Outline of the Bar examination process.
  • Information on admission without examination for persons who may be qualified by virtue of their years of experience in the full-time practice of law
  • The Rules Governing Admission to the Practice of Law in the State of Oklahoma (promulgated by the Oklahoma Supreme Court)

We hope that one of the most useful features of this site will be the various application forms.  Simply complete the fillable PDF form, print and return all requested documents to our office.  Detailed instructions on the completion of each application package are displayed on the application checklist.
