What to do if You Can't Find a Preceptor


You are obligated to make every effort to locate a preceptor on your own. If you are unable to do so despite your best efforts, you can contact the Preceptor Bank and they will work with you to locate a preceptor. You should not contact the Preceptor Bank until you have exhausted all other options on your own. It is recommended that you begin your search for a preceptor as early as possible.

Please note that the Preceptor Bank is only a resource to help you locate a preceptor. They cannot assist you in securing a five month clerkship opportunity.

Please only call the contacts listed below for assistance in locating a preceptor. All other questions regarding your application and/or admission should be directed to the Executive Director of the Board of Bar Examiners.
