July 2020 Bar Examination Test Sites

In accordance with Board Rule 6000.8 applicants shall be assigned to a test center in one of the four judicial departments located in New York State. Test center assignments will be based on availability and a first come, first serve basis and no applicant is guaranteed a seat in any particular city or test center, even if the applicant lives or attended law school in that city. All applicants will receive an email sometime after the application period closes and they will be required to select and confirm their seat location. First-time applicants who graduate with a Juris Doctor degree from a New York State law school will be given the first opportunity to select a seat assignment. Only locations with available seats will be listed in the email. Once a location is filled, it will no longer appear in the list of locations 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.
