Log in and follow the instructions. Your Student ID (under Exam takers) is your 9-digit TUID (found on your Temple ID card), and your password is the first letter of your first name + the first letter of your last name + the last 4 digits of your Student ID. Both letters are capitalized. (Example: Jane Doe 123456789 will be JD6789).  Once you have downloaded the software and installed it, you may elect to take any or all of your scheduled free-slot exams on your computer.

Fingerprinting for the PA Bar – New Procedure

Beginning in January 2019, the Pennsylvania Board of Law Examiners will require all applicants to the bar to submit their fingerprints to IdentoGo (the Company contracted by the State of Pennsylvania) in order to have their federal criminal history record provided to the PA Board for use in the character and fitness review.  Applicants must submit their fingerprint to IdentoGo, and no other provider.  IdentoGo has facilities across the state.  Applicants must apply to the bar before they will be able to submit their fingerprints to the Board.  The Board does not have a deadline for applicants to meet this requirement.  However, like all other required documentation for admission, the faster the applicant does their part to complete the file, the earlier the file goes into the queue for initial approval or denial.  A summary of the process will eventually be make available on the Board’s website.
