The Minnesota Board of Law Examiners licenses attorneys to the practice of law in Minnesota. Lawyers may be admitted either by bar examination or by years of practice.

Visitors to the office will need to visit the security desk by the 4th street entrance to access the elevators to the 9th floor. We recommend calling before coming to the Board offices as most questions can be answered over the telephone or by email. Please follow health guidelines when visiting.

PLEASE NOTE: The office will be closed to the public January 18, 2022 through February 4, 2022. Please contact the Board office by email or telephone if you require assistance during this time period.

The Minnesota Board of Law Examiners (Board) has commenced a comprehensive two-year study of the bar examination.
