Add New York to the list of jurisdictions that have canceled their bar exam.

The New York Court of Appeals on Thursday announced the planned Sept. 9 and 10 in-person exam will not happen. The exam was already postponed from late July, when the licensing exam is typically given. Unlike many other jurisdictions that have also canceled their exams this month, New York did not immediately announce plans for an alternative online test or other licensure paths. The impact of the cancellation is likely to ripple across the country, as New York is the single largest bar exam jurisdiction. About 10,000 people typically sit for its July exam.
