Law School Certificate for the DC Bar

*If you have not yet graduated:

According to the DC bar, you may submit a law school certificate prior to completing your degree.

If you choose to do this, you must submit this form only.
 

If you do this, you will not need to resubmit a request for an updated law school certificate. The new one will be emailed to you within four weeks of graduating.

*If you have already graduated:

Email your request to registrationservices@wcl.american.edu (you do not need to attach the form because we retain a copy, though please indicate your AU ID number and exactly how you'd like your name spelled on the form).

Processing Policy

Due to the volume of requests, certificates are processed weekly, on Thursdays. To allow us to process bar forms as efficiently as possible, we ask that you please submit your requests before 12:00 pm (noon) on Wednesday. Requests received after 12:00 pm (noon) will be processed the following week.

You will not be notified that your forms have been submitted. Know that we retain records that can be used later to verify that the records were sent in response to any questions from the Bar.
