Functional Equivalency

Functional Equivalency Committee

The Functional Equivalency Committee, which includes 11 members plus one liaison from the Board of Governors, investigates and holds hearings on bar applicants who graduate from non-ABA accredited law schools. The committee must determine whether or not the applicant's education is functionally equivalent to an ABA-accredited law school's education, and if so, certify the applicant to sit for the bar examination.
