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.

The Applicant Portal may be down for maintenance between Friday, August 12th 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 14th 5:00 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Visitors to the office will need to visit the security desk by the 5th 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.

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