In an effort to assist bar applicants with disabilities, the Commission's directory of bar information for applicants with disabilities (BIAD) provides information from state, territorial, and federal jurisdictions that grant licenses to practice law.
This directory contains information regarding:
- The process for seeking bar examination accommodations for each state, including links to forms, deadlines, and additional information about the bar application process, and sample cases; and
- Information about each state’s character and fitness inquiry, including links to forms, rules, and sample cases.
For the state bars, click on the state listed on the map where you will be taking the bar, or on its abbreviation listed below the map. Territories are in the listing below the map.
Relevant information for applying to a federal bar is listed at the bottom of this page.
