Certificate of Graduation for Bar
The Law School will send a certificate of graduation for each UGA Law graduate to the Georgia Office of Bar Admissions that permits you to sit for the July Georgia Bar Examination. After the July bar examination (the beginning of August 2011) you will need to request a final official academic transcript from the UGA Registrar's Office to be sent to the Georgia Office of Bar Admissions, which will permit you to be sworn in after bar passage results are posted in October. Your UGA Transcript can be requested online at http://www.reg.uga.edu/transcripts.
We are aware that the Office of Bar Admissions sends a letter requesting a transcript prior to the July Bar Examination. That information is for other applicants, not Georgia Law graduates. A copy of the rules regarding the certificate of graduation for graduates of Georgia law schools can be found at www.gabaradmissions.org. This
information is on page 9 of the Supreme Court of Georgia Rules Governing Admission to the Practice of Law which is Section 4, Part B, (c) lines 8‐17.
Remember, in August you will need to request an official academic transcript from the UGA Registrar's Office to be sent to the Georgia Office of Bar Admissions. Do not request the transcript from the Law School Registrar's Office for Bar purposes. If you are sitting for a Bar in another state, please read their policies and procedures.
