Bar exam for clerks

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 03, 2014 3:57 pm

When do most clerks take the bar? My judge offers three possible start dates (June, July, and August). Are most clerks in the same boat? Anyone take the exam in Feb during their clerkship? Right as they finish?

Most take it in July, I'm pretty sure. I'm taking another one this month, but that is only because of the job I recently accepted. I think it would be far better to take it before you start clerking- studying while working is terrible.

Yeah, the only clerks I knew who took the bar in February were taking their second bar exam - they'd all taken an exam in July before starting in August.
