  2. PASS LIST TWO (Blue List) - Applicants who passed the February 2017 exam, but who have outstanding admission requirements, and at this time are NOT licensed to practice law.

The following persons passed the February 2017 Virginia Bar Examination, have achieved the required score on the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination, have met all other requirements for admission to the Virginia Bar, and are being licensed effective April 14, 2017.

To Applicants on List One: The Virginia Board of Bar Examiners mailed to each licensed applicant a package containing (1) a letter notifying the applicant that he or she passed the Virginia Bar Exam, (2) a Registration Package from the Virginia State Bar, (3) information about the admission ceremony before the Court on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, and (4) an Oath Package from the Supreme Court of Virginia. All information needed for registering and attending the admission ceremony is enclosed in the package mailed.

All change of address requests received on or before April 10, 2017 have been made.

If you submitted your change of address after April 10, 2017, or failed to notify us of your change of address, make sure you have a forwarding order on file with the United States Post Office. We cannot resend the registration packages due to the cost of postage.

Do NOT call the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners, the Virginia State Bar, or the Supreme Court of Virginia with questions regarding registration or the admission ceremony until AFTER you have received your package and have read all of the documents. Most questions will be answered in those documents.

If your name does not appear on either Pass List One or Pass List Two, you did NOT achieve a passing score on the February 2017 Virginia Bar Examination. Your results and instructions for re-application were mailed to your address on file.

Application for Re-examination can be found on our website barexam.virginia.gov. Click on - Bar Exam - Applying for Exam - Application.

Please Note: The filing deadline for the July 2017 bar exam is May 10, 2017.

See § 54.1-3925 of the Code of Virginia.

If your application is not actually received in the Secretary's office by the filing deadline (May 10 for the July exam; December 15 for the February exam), it may be deemed to be timely filed only if it has been transmitted expense prepaid to the Office of the Secretary of the Board by Priority, Express, Registered or Certified mail via the United States Postal Service, or by a third party commercial carrier for Next-Day Delivery and the official receipt therefor issued by the United States Postal Service or by such third party commercial carrier, which shall be exhibited on demand of the Secretary, shows such transmission or mailing to the Secretary's office on or before the prescribed deadline.

Priority, Express, Registered or Certified mail via the United States Postal Service or Next-Day Delivery by a third party commercial carrier are the ONLY methods of transmission or mailing authorized by the statute. Thus, an application sent by any other form of mail, such as First Class mail, CANNOT be accepted if it is received after the filing deadline, even if it is postmarked before.

Applications for Examination and Character & Fitness Questionnaires should be filed no more than 90 days prior to the filing deadline, but must be filed by the statutory filing deadline in accordance with § 54.1-3925 of the Code of Virginia.
