NCBE® July 2020 Bar Exam Updates by State

May 1, 2020 - The NCBE® is keeping us all up to date on the state-by-state bar exam updates for the summer of 2020.

As you know, the bar exam has always been in February and July. Always... well, until now. Due to restrictions to help spread the coronavirus, states have had to postpone or otherwise alter their plans for the July bar exam administration.

Each jurisdiction is making decisions based on their ability to bring future lawyers into a testing center. The NCBE is working to help keep us all informed with a page on their website:


Review the page to see the latest news in your jurisdiction. You may find that your bar exam is going on as planned in July, or you may find that it has been affected in one or more of these ways:

    • Postponed to September or October
    • Available in both July and the fall
    • Altered to remove the MBE® portion
    • Administered online
