“In light of accelerating public health concerns and continuing governmental restrictions, the Board of Law Examiners has concluded that an in-person bar exam cannot be safely administered on September 9-10, 2020’ officials wrote on the New York Board of Law Examiners website. ‘Participants’ health and safety must remain our top priority and, because conditions have not sufficiently improved, the September exam has been canceled.”
Chief Judge Janet DiFiore announced she has appointed a working group to be chaired by retired Court of Appeals Judge Howard A. Levine to evaluate the future of the test and find the best solution.
The working group will determine whether to opt for an abbreviated online version of the bar exam that is being offered NCBE on Oct. 5 and 6, or an emergency diploma privilege to allow law grads to practice without taking the test—an option that has gained a lot of momentum in recent weeks.
The President of the New York State Bar Association said the group will “promptly review” the matter and make recommendations on how best to proceed.
