What is the California Law and Ethics Exam?

If you have an active MFT Intern registration, you must take the California Law and Ethics Exam once per renewal period until you pass. If you have already taken and passed the old Standard Written Exam (before 1/1/2016), you do not need to take the California Law and Ethics Exam. Instead, you should get approval to take the new Clinical Exam.
