Applicants for Indiana’s July bar exam may now access an online application at the Indiana Board of Law Examiners’ website, www.courts.in.gov/ble.
The application process previously included a series of forms applicants needed to download from the site and send to the board.
“We are excited to begin a new chapter at BLE that will make the process easier for those interested in taking the bar. The new online application portal will also soon be of use to attorneys seeking admission on foreign license or business counsel and lawyers forming a PC, LLP or LLC for purposes of practicing law in Indiana,” said Bradley Skolnik, executive director of the Indiana State Board of Law Examiners.
The new electronic bar admission portal is part of a software package that digitizes and automates the entire bar admission process. ILG Information Technologies provided the upgrade which was paid for by bar admission fees, not state tax money.
The transition to the new site will include two phases with bar exam and legal internships available online now. Corporations, foreign license and business counsel license are scheduled to be online in March.
