The Kentucky Bar Association (KBA) now provides new admittees with the ability to submit their initial application online at https://secure.kentucky.gov/formservices/KYBAR/NAA.
The elevation of the new admittee process to an online application will allow for an expedited and more proficient experience.
“The new online process has reduced the time lapse between an admittee’s application and approval by as much as two weeks,” said Michele Pogrotsky, the KBA’s accounting and membership director.
The KBA sought to move the admittee application online as a way to better serve its membership.
