Step 2. Take the Bar Exam

The San Andreas Bar Examination must be passed before a future lawyer can be admitted to practice in San Andreas. A non-refundable $50,000 fee is required. You will have 48 hours to complete the examination and return it for grading.

Step 3. Results and Admission

If you receive a sufficient score on the bar examination, you will be admitted to the State Bar of San Andreas. You will then only become fully licensed to practice in the state after reading the Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) and taking an oath.

If you fail the examination, you will be able to retake it as many times as necessary with a waiting period ranging from 1-2 weeks in between each attempt. If this is the case, you'll need to re-submit your application to apply for another examination.
