California’s Supreme Court late Wednesday raised the possibility of holding the next bar exam online in October instead of September, noting that the National Conference of Bar Examiners will offer an online version of the multiple-choice Multistate Bar Exam on Oct. 6.

“As the state bar is aware, the administration of the MBE is an essential component to scoring the entire two-day exam,” the court’s clerk and executive officer, Jorge Navarrete, said in a letter to bar chairman Alan Steinbrecher.
