Functional Equivalency Committee

The Functional Equivalency Committee, which includes 11 members plus one liaison from the Board of Governors, investigates and holds hearings on bar applicants who graduate from non-ABA accredited law schools. The committee must determine whether or not the applicant's education is functionally equivalent to an ABA-accredited law school's education, and if so, certify the applicant to sit for the bar examination.

  • Terms: three-year term, no term limit
