Michigan has joined the small but growing list of jurisdictions that plan to administer the July bar exam online amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Michigan Supreme Court on Monday ordered that the attorney licensing exam, which normally takes place in person over two days, will be reduced to one day and given remotely July 28. Indiana on May 7 became the first jurisdiction to commit to giving an online bar exam. The Nevada Supreme Court has asked for public comments on a similar plan—under which the test would be open book—and is expected to make a decision by May 22. Massachusetts and California have also said they might give an online bar exam in September, after postponing their July exams. And Utah has created a pathway for some recent graduates to skip the bar exam altogether.
