How to Check Your Results

If you took the February exam your results will be mailed to you in November.  You will be able to see your passage status several days before the pass list is publicly available.  You will need your applicant and file numbers to log in and see your results.  Once you have completed all the requirements, you will get an admission packet in the mail that includes your results letter and information about how to complete your membership enrollment card.  The membership enrollment card must be filled out and signed by an individual authorized to administer oaths.  You do not need to attend the admission ceremonies coordinated by the State Bar.

The pass list is available online at the State Bar of California's website.
