An applicant for admission in Delaware must also meet the preceptor and clerkship requirement. The clerkship requirement consists of a five-month clerkship program aggregating twenty-one full-time (40-hour) work weeks, which must be completed in Delaware, under the supervision of a Delaware attorney. In addition, the applicant must complete a checklist of clerkship items. The Clerkship Checklist can be found on the Board’s website. If the clerkship is not completed and the applicant admitted to the bar before December 31st of the year following the year in which the applicant passed the Delaware Bar Exam, the exam must be retaken. All applicants must also complete a two-day pre-admission conference. See the Delaware Bar Admissions website for details and other requirements.
