The Tennessee Supreme Court is the latest to announce that it will be forced to shut some would-be bar takers out of the July Uniform Bar Exam, saying it will be closing the applications period early due to higher-than-anticipated demand driven, in part, by other jurisdictions’ actions.

The move comes after the D.C. Court of Appeals limited seating for the July 2022 UBE to 1,100 and announced last week that preference will be given to students from Washington, D.C.-area law schools, which was followed earlier this week by the Maine Board of Examiners limiting seating to 200 with preference given to those seeking admission to the Maine bar.
