QUESTIONS – The uncertainty surrounding the next bar exam is the source of much consternation among soon-to-be law students, state licensing authorities and exam developers. California has yet to announce a decision about its July bar exam amid much discussion among stakeholders, while New York has said it will administer the test in “early September,” a move that every law school dean in the state gave a collective thumbs down to. The deans are concerned that a September exam may not be possible for public health reasons, and they want 2020 grads to be able to practice for up to 18 months under the supervision of a licensed attorney. In addition, any decisions by the states will require buy-in from the National Conference of Bar Examiners, which develops the test.
