The California State Bar “inadvertently” revealed to law school deans the essay topics that will be covered on this week’s bar exam, the bar told registered test-takers in an email Saturday night.

The bar said “out of abundance of caution and fairness” it has provided the same information about the test to those registered to take it on Tuesday and Wednesday at sites around the state. The topics that will be covered on the exam will be civil procedure, remedies/constitutional law, criminal law and procedure, professional responsibility, contracts and evidence.
