IMPORTANT APPLICATION NOTICE FOR FEBRUARY 2019 EXAM APPLICANTS:

The registration period for the February 2019 Arizona Uniform Bar Examination will be postponed until further notice due to the transition to a new online application system. Please check back after September 4, 2018 for registration updates.

IMPORTANT APPLICATION NOTICE FOR ALL OTHER APPLICATIONS:
Please review the additional information below regarding other applications you may have started such as Character and Fitness, Admission on Motion or Uniform Bar Examination Transfer Application:

Within the next few weeks, a new online Attorney Admissions application system will be released, and the current online application site https://elicense02.az.gov/app/azsc/ will no longer be functional. You are strongly encouraged to finalize your application as soon as possible. If you have not completed or paid for the application, please plan to do so or wait to resume the application process when the new system has been deployed. If you have started an application, you may elect to wait to apply using the new system. You are strongly encouraged to verify that you have copies of all documents you may have uploaded to your application on your computer, in the event you need to reload documents prior to final submission. If you have completed, submitted and paid for your application, no action is needed at this time and we expect to have all your application information converted into the new system. Refer to this Attorney Admissions webpage for updates over the next several weeks. 

 

Thank you, 
Attorney Admissions

The Arizona Supreme Court administers the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE). Applicants passing a UBE are allowed to transfer a passing score earned in Arizona to other UBE jurisdictions without testing, subject to the rules of that state. UBE rules vary from state to state; please contact specific jurisdictions if you wish to seek admission based on UBE. Additional information about the Uniform Bar Examination, including a list of UBE jurisdictions, may be found at www.ncbex.org.

 
There are three paths for admission to the practice of law in the state of Arizona:
