Standard 509

The American Bar Association (ABA) requires law schools to comply with Standard 509, which concerns accurate consumer information distribution to current and potential law students. This information is posted throughout the UK Law website, but compiled here for the purposes of easily finding our Standard 509 compliance information.


Qualifications for Admissions to the Bar

Standard 504 of the ABA requires that law schools advise each applicant as follows: "In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners."
