National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE)

Bar applicants must complete a character report from the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) in order to seek admission to practice law in Louisiana. The investigation process starts for Louisiana law students during their second year of law school. The process continues as the applicant enters his/her third year by filing a Supplemental character report.

Applicants applying for the first time must also complete a Request for Preparation of Character Report through the NCBE.

Once a preliminary NCBE report is returned to the LASCBA, our Panel will review the results and determine if further inquiry is necessary.

NCBE Online Request for the Preparation of Character Report

After the applicant completes the online portion of the Request for Preparation of a Character Report in accordance with the directions provided by the NCBE, he/she will be directed to printout certain forms to be signed, notarized and mailed to LASCBA. Mail these required forms to:

Louisiana Supreme Court Committee on Bar Admissions
2800 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Ste 310
Metairie, LA 70002

IMPORTANT! Bar Exam applications cannot be considered on-time or complete without notice of a submission of the request for the Preparation of Character Report from the NCBE. Failure to do so may lead to late fees and possibily the inability to sit for the Bar Exam.

It is the applicant's responsibility to keep information up-to-date and to file amendments as necessary should there be changes in address, employment, name, violations or other pertinant information.
