The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) goal is for the NCBE Number to someday replace the Social Security number as the applicant’s unique identifier. The process for applicants to request an NCBE Number is at www.ncbex.org/ncbe-number.
The process to request an NCBE Number takes only a few minutes. Once the applicant submits the required information via a secure online account, an NCBE Number is generated instantaneously and appears on the applicant’s NCBE Number Account home page along with a link to print a confirmation.
The NCBE will begin requesting the NCBE Number in the NCBE Character and Fitness Application in 2012.
Requesting the NCBE number does not register you with the jurisdiction. You must comply with the application procedures and submit the required forms.
