Want to know which jurisdictions have canceled their planned bar exams? How about the jurisdictions requiring test takers to sign COVID-19 liability waivers? What safety protocols are jurisdictions implementing at testing sites?
The most comprehensive source of information on what’s happening nationally with the bar exam is at @BarExamTracker—an anonymously authored Twitter account that offers detailed information on how the exam is playing out in individual jurisdictions as well highly accurate predictions about changes to the test and cancellations. The account debuted in June and now boasts more than 4,000 followers. It has quickly become a go-to repository of information for law graduates who are lobbying for emergency diploma privileges and other changes, and an outlet for examinees who feel left in the dark by bar examiners and courts. The account gained credibility earlier this month when it accurately predicted that officials in Tennessee would cancel the planned in-person July exam a day ahead of the official announcement. Since then, @BarExamTracker has predicted a number of other cancellations, including Georgia, California and New York.
