Law school deans who penned a letter last week expressing concern over the D.C. Court of Appeals’ May 2 announcement that seating for the July 2022 Uniform Bar Exam will be limited to 1,100 and that preference will be given to students from Washington, D.C.-area law schools, received a response from Chief Judge Anna Blackburne-Rigsby on Friday that reiterated what the court had previously stated on the issue.

The standard administration of the July 2022 Uniform Bar Exam will take place at the D.C. Armory on July 26 and 27 with the seating capacity for the exam set at 1,100, which includes all standard and accommodated seating with registration closing once the seating capacity is reached, according to the May 2 announcement on the D.C. Court of Appeals website.
