Nevada and Louisiana have joined the short but growing list of jurisdictions taking extraordinary measures in handling the upcoming bar exam amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Louisiana will eliminate the Multistate Bar Exam—the 200-question multiple-choice portion of the test—in order to pare its three-day exam down to one day, which will be offered in-person July 27 and Oct. 10.

It is accepting comments through May 14 and is expected to reach a final decision by May 22.
