Act now to take PACE Exam at a discount!

The PACE exam is currently undergoing an extensive update, with a BETA Testing Phase beginning March 25, 2019 and lasting until June 30, 2019. June 10, 2019 will be the final date to submit a PACE BETA application and receive the participant discount.

BETA participants will not receive a pass/fail score at the time of completion of the exam, but rather must wait until all BETA Exams are analyzed, which will then be verified by Prometric Psychometricians. We anticipate notifying all BETA examinees of their results by early-July 2019 (exact dates subject to change).

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact the Vice President & Director of Paralegal Certification at with any questions.
