In the event an applicant is unable to view their Checklist, he/she should NOT contact the Board office for the information. The only documenation explained on the Checklist which is of a timely concern is a Certificate of Good Standing. Bar exam applicants need to have this documenation supplied the Board office PRIOR to sitting for a bar examination. Detailed information on the Certificate of Good Standing requirement for bar exam applicants can be found in section (A) of Rule 203 or section (1) of Rule 205.

Any other missing documentation needed for an applicant's application will be explained in a mailed letter and/or message. An example of the letter is provided below (please note, this example may not apply to all applicants):
