February 2015 Bar Examination Test Sites

In accordance with Board Rule 6000.5 applicants shall be assigned to a test center in one of the four judicial departments located in New York State. Test center assignments will depend on the sites available for a given administration of the examination. All applicants will receive an email sometime after the application period closes and they will be required to select and confirm their seat location. Only locations with available seats will be listed in the email. Generally, applicants will be assigned to a test center in the department in which they reside (at the time the application is completed); out-of-state residents will be given the opportunity to select from Albany, Saratoga or Buffalo, based on which locations have available seats at the time the applicant responds to the seating email. Once a location is filled, it will no longer appear in the email. If your preferred location does not appear in the email you must select from the locations that are available. Please do not call the Board's office - we will not maintain a waiting list for any location.
