NCBE Will Support Two Fall Bar Exam Dates

The National Conference of Bar Examiners has announced that it will make its materials available for two separate bar exam administrations this fall, in addition to the usual July dates:

To provide needed flexibility for jurisdictions and candidates, in addition to preparing materials for a July bar exam, NCBE will make bar exam materials available for two fall administrations in 2020: September 9-10 and September 30-October 1. Each jurisdiction will determine whether to offer the exam in July, in early September, or in late September.

NCBE also continues to update jurisidiction-specific information on its website:

NCBE continues to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely. The health and safety of bar applicants and of our employees and volunteers are of paramount importance to us. We will update this page as new information becomes available.
