The Courts of the Province were first authorized to examine per-
sons seeking to practice law in 1715 (1715, Ch. 48, sec. 12). The ex-
amination of attorneys remained as a function of the several courts
of the State until 1898, when the State Board of Law Examiners was
created. The Board is composed of three members appointed by the
Judges of the Court of Appeals. It is the duty of the Board to examine
all persons wishing to practice law in the State. These examinations
are given twice yearly in the City of Baltimore during the months of
March and July. The Board also passes upon the petitions of attorneys
from other states and territories desiring admittance to the Maryland
Bar in accordance with rule fourteen of the Board. Appeals from the
findings and recommendations of the Character Committees of the
various counties and the City of Baltimore are passed upon by the
State Board. In addition to these powers, the Board accredits univer-
sities and colleges in the State of Maryland for pre-legal training and
prescribes the necessary courses of study for law students. Students
expecting to study law in anticipation of practicing in Maryland must
register their intentions with the Board. While the rules of the Board
are formulated by the Court of Appeals, the Board has the right to
prescribe such rules as may be necessary for the conduct of examina-
tions, providing such rules do not conflict with those made by the
Court (Code 1947, Supp., Art. 10, secs. 2-4).
