Test Accommodations for the New York Bar Exam and the New York Law Exam

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, it is the policy of the New York State Board of Law Examiners to provide accommodations in testing conditions to applicants with disabilities for the bar examination and the New York Law Exam (NYLE) to the extent such accommodations are timely requested, reasonable, not unduly burdensome, consistent with the nature and purpose of the examination and necessitated by the applicant's disability.

Applicants are encouraged to carefully review Board Rule 6000.7 and the Test Accommodations Handbook which covers the requirements and procedures for requesting test accommodations on the bar exam and/or the NYLE.
