In order to register for the exams, one must submit one's law degree, along with the required application, and one must also make a deposit of 160 Shekels per exam into the Israel Bar's bank account at the Israeli Post Office. One's law degree must be recognized by the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University, unless you have at least two years of legal experience as an attorney (or judge) in your country of origin while holding a license to practice law in that country. Thus, attorneys, should submit a certificate of good standing or any other official document from a competent authority (State Bar for U.S. attorneys) in the country (or state for U.S. attorneys) where he or she practiced, which confirms the attorney's license to practice law. If one has the two years of experience, one should also submit a letter by one's former employer attesting to the fact that one indeed worked at least two years in the capacity as an attorney or judge.
The Israel Bar will only accept an Israeli notarized copy of your law degree/diploma by an Israeli attorney, which means that an Israeli attorney should be notarizing the copy of your degree. I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that in Israel not all attorneys are notaries. Rather, only attorneys with at least ten years of experience have the ability to become notaries. Also be aware that if you'd like to get a notarized copy, you ordinarily need to show the notary your original degree/diploma. Those of you abroad, may be able to get your degree/diploma notarized by the Israeli Consulate. Any other official documetns you submit to the Israel Bar should also be notarized by an Israeli attorney if possible. The Israel Bar may accept some un-notarized copies of some documents, such as letters of employment, but you should double check this with the Israel Bar.
It has been recommended that one should submit the official documents a couple of months in advance of the exams. The actual application for registration of the exams, however, does not need to be submitted until about two weeks prior to the exams. Nevertheless, I believe it is still possible to submit documents and the registration application later than the official stated period and be able to take the exams. In fact, I submitted my documents (diploma, certifcate of good standing, etc.) a week before I took my first exam. You should still always double check the rules (and their flexibility) with representatives at the Israel Bar.
The Israel Bar has already posted the dates and application for the upcoming August exams.
