February 2014 Michigan Bar Results
Your two-day fight is over. Take a deep breath because you’ve done all that you can do. Goodwin & Scieszka would like to congratulate the February 2014 Michigan bar examinees.
Wondering when you’ll have your February 2014 results? According to the Michigan State Bar:
Examination results are generally released in mid-November for the July exam and mid-May for the February exam. Results are not given out over the telephone, so please do not call to inquire about your results.
This is that hardest part of it all – the wait. Now’s the time to start looking for that perfect job (consider these):
Wonder when you’re going to get your license to practice law?
Assuming that you’ve received a passing score of 135 or above, then according to the Michigan State Bar:
After you have applied for membership in the State Bar of Michigan and paid the required dues, you will receive by return mail a membership card bearing your license number.
But wait, there’s more. In order to practice law in the State of Michigan:
The applicant must appear and present the Board of Law Examiners certification to the Supreme Court or one of the circuit courts, and upon motion made in open court by a licensed lawyer, the court will enter an order admitting the applicant to the Michigan bar. After being admitted to the bar by the court, the applicant must then complete an application for membership in the State Bar of Michigan, enclosing payment of the required dues. By return mail, the applicant will receive a membership card bearing a license number. Registration with the State Bar of Michigan and payment of bar dues is the final step in becoming authorized to practice law before the state courts of Michigan.
