August Graduates


This message is for those of you who expect to be August 2009 graduates of the Law School:

(1) Absolute Deadline: pursuant to Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules, August 2009 graduates must file a bar admission application with the BBE no later than 01 October 2009, or you may lose your opportunity for Diploma Privilege admission.  Note that the BBE does not recognize postmarks.

(2) The WI Board of Bar Examiners (BBE) has asked that all third-years be reminded that, re the Diploma Privilege Information & Filing Instructions, at the top of page two (under the heading "Filing of an Application") are some specific guidelines.  These must be read & complied with.  The BBE reports that students have been submitting applications without the proper form of payment and/or without the Authorization and Release Form.  Note that the Filing Instructions must be exactly followed for an application to be considered filed.

(3) Finally, if you need a 2009 Diploma Privilege Character & Fitness Certification application, it is on-line at .  If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the BBE at (608) 266-9760 and ask for the Diploma Privilege area.

Thank you for your attention.
