The Massachusetts Bar Exam is a two-day test administered twice annually in February and July.  The first day of the examination involves a multiple-choice Multistate Bar Exam, and the second day focuses on 10 essay questions specific to law in the state of Massachusetts.

Next for those who made the grade in July is a formal Massachusetts Bar Association admission ceremony held at Faneuil Hall at the end of the month.
