The Board of Law Examiners
is empowered by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to recommend
for admission only those individuals who have demonstrated the
minimum competency and requisite character necessary to become
a member of the bar of this Commonwealth. This mission preserves
the integrity of the legal system, and protects all individuals
seeking legal representation from unethical or incompetent lawyers.
The Board emphasizes the importance of professional responsibility
and character in the legal profession, and evaluates the likelihood
of an applicant's ability to uphold, and commit to, the standards
of the profession.
