The New York City Bar Association is urging the state’s Court of Appeals to offer more “certainty” by Aug. 1 over a bar exam and licensure of 2020 law graduates.

The state canceled the planned Sept. 9 and 10 in-person exam. But 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, placing 2020 law graduates into high uncertainty. Chief Judge Janet DiFiore has appointed a working group to evaluate the next steps.
