Bar Examination Test Sites


The July 25-26, 2023 New York State Bar Examination will be administered in-person at the General Population test sites located below. Any candidate who has already been awarded non-standard test accommodations will be notified of their test center location in early June.

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 on a first come, first serve basis. 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 be sent an email during the first full week of June containing a link instructing the applicant to select and confirm their preferred location (Albany, Buffalo, New York City, Long Island, Saratoga Sprints or White Plains). First-time applicants who graduate with a Juris Doctor degree from a New York State law school will be given first priority to select their location. 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 appear at the time that you access the link. The Board will not maintain a wait list for any location.
