July 2020 MD Bar Exam - postponed or no?

Post by plaiseadieu » Fri May 22, 2020 5:02 pm

Did Maryland finally decide if they are going to hold the bar exam in July? Or have they decided to push it back to September?

The MD SBLE sent out an email today stating this:

THE JULY 2020 UBE IN MARYLAND WILL BE POSTPONED AND RESCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER 9 AND 10 at multiple locations to be determined. SBLE’s ability to conduct a September UBE will depend on then-existing public health conditions.



The Court’s Administrative Order postponing the UBE and an accompanying press release are expected to issue on Tuesday morning, May 26, 2020. Further logistical information on the planned September exam will follow as it becomes available. Applicants whose complete, hard-copy application packages were filed by SBLE on or before the May 20 filing deadline need do nothing further to receive a seat for the planned September exam. Applicants whose hard-copy applications were not received by May 20, or were incomplete on May 20, will be reviewed under the good cause procedures in Md. Rule 19-206 and Board Rule 2.



Individual, specific questions regarding the postponement of the July 2020 UBE may be addressed to SBLE@mdcourts.gov. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on office staffing, SBLE cannot respond to questions by telephone.
