Helpful Hints for the Jurisprudence (JP) Exam:

   – Should you experience persistent issues when taking the exam, please contact our office. Staff may ask you to provide a screenshot showing the IP address you used (in IPv4 format) and the time of the exam; in some cases, such may be useful in resolving the issue.

      Licensees, remember that your license must display on our license verification page as current and unexpired in order to provide services.

   – Please note that updating your browser and restarting your computer, clearing the browser’s cache, and/or trying on a different device connected to the internet in a different manner (ex: using a smartphone on data, rather than a computer on Wi-Fi) may address JP issues for some users.

   – Users who may have previously experienced issues are encouraged to try taking the exam on a smartphone, on data (not Wi-Fi).

    – If you do not interact with the exam page by either advancing to the next exam question or returning to a previous question at least every approximately 24 minutes, the exam page will time out and you will need to restart the exam. It is recommended to take the exam in one sitting to reduce technical difficulties. Please also note that the exam itself, which is a 20-question exam, will also time out after a period of time (usually after approximately 3 hours).  

 – After you pass the exam, you must enter and submit your personal information. After you have done so, you will receive a message that your score has been automatically reported to the Board.
