1 Graduates of the Flex JD Program will be eligible to sit for the bar exam in most jurisdictions. However, Seattle U Law has identified a few states, including New York, in which the Flex JD format does not meet their current educational requisites. Applicants should be aware that bar eligibility, admission rules, and rule interpretations can change and are encouraged to contact any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission to determine requirements. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
