In-State Student Application to take the Texas Bar Exam
Use this application only if your J.D. degree was (or will be) awarded by an ABA-approved Texas law school and you have not been licensed to practice law in another jurisdiction. Do not use this application if you have taken, or applied for, a previous Texas Bar Examination.
The Board of Law Examiners is pleased to provide eFast
Direct (Electronic Forms Application Systems Tool).
If you are filing a Declaration of Intent to Study Law and an Instate Application simultaneously, please do not mail the forms separately. All forms and required documents should be mailed in one envelope to the Board of Law Examiners. You may use one check to cover all fees.
We hope that completing your Application through eFast Direct will be easy and
quick! Please contact your Licensure Analyst at the Board’s office if you have
any questions during the process.
Create Account -- Begin by selecting Create Account. Your password is case sensitive and requires a minimum of six (6) letters plus one (1) special character. Make a note of your password and the answer to your security question. If you forget both your password and the answer to your security question, we will not be able to retrieve your account and you will be required to start the process over. You may use the account that you created with your Declaration of Intent to Study Law. For security purposes, your personal information is purged on a regular basis. If you do not recall your Declaration account name and/or password, use this link to create a new account.
