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.
