Supervising Attorney and Judge Volunteers Needed for the State Bar Provisional Licensing Program.
The California Supreme Court recently lowered the passing score for the Bar exam. The Court also authorized a program to let people who took the exam in the last five years that would have passed under the new score earn bar admission through a 300-hour provisional licensing program. A provisionally licensed attorney must be supervised by a California attorney with at least four years in practice, two of those in California. SUPERVISING ATTORNEYS AND JUDGE VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED!
