Postby GoldenPuppy » Wed Nov 07, 2018 12:54 pm

Let's compile a list of state bars that do and don't require, under normal circumstances, an in-person character & fitness (C&F) interview.

Requires In-Person Interview:
Maryland
New York
North Carolina (on the day of the exam if out-of-state?)

Does Not Require:
California
District of Columbia
Missouri

Please let me know about the other states, if you happen to know.

I can't edit the original post any longer. As we keep getting more entries, I'll post an updated list.

If you're aware of any in-state versus out-of-state interview distinctions, please note those, as well. Thank you!

AFAIK-Pennsylvania does NOT require an in-person c & f interview except in the rare circumstance you have something in your background they are questioning on your application.
