Idaho State Bar Admissions Application

The Idaho State Bar uses an online application form that enables you to apply to take the Idaho Bar Exam, for transfer of your Uniform Bar Examination (“UBE”) score to Idaho, for reciprocal admission in Idaho, or for an Idaho House Counsel license.

We recommend that you draft and save your responses to the online application questions in another program, such as Microsoft Word, then copy and paste that information into the online application form. This process will ensure that your work has been saved in the event of a problem with the submission of your online application.

We also recommend that you do not keep a draft application saved for more than 7 days. In order to avoid any technical problems with your submission, it is best to open the online application, complete it and submit it within 7 days.

Includes information for completing the Application. Please review these instructions before completing the Application.
