Students who use laptop computers for February's New York bar examination will have different software than that which malfunctioned for some candidates in July 2007. Also, candidates will be required to sign more detailed waivers absolving the state Board of Law Examiners of liability if hardware, software or even the electricity in the examination hall fails during the test. The changes are the result of problems with SecurExam, the software used during the July 2007 exam.
