Kansas Board of Law Examiners
Admission to the Bar without Written Examination

Applicants seeking admission without written examination in Kansas should complete the application and submit the application with all the required documentation to Attorney Admissions for consideration. Completed applications must include the required filing fee of $1250.

Typically applications for admission to the bar without examination take 3 to 4 months to process from the date the application is accepted.  Processing time will be delayed if a completed fingerprint packet is not included with the application.

Kansas fingerprint packet   All applicants for admission are required to submit a completed Kansas fingerprint packet with their application.  Applications received without a completed fingerprint packet will not be sent for a character and fitness investigation.

Kansas requires that your undergraduate and law transcripts be mailed directly to Attorney Admissions from the college or university.  Request transcripts far enough in advance that they are received by Attorney Admissions prior to your application.
