In re Relative to Postponing the July 2020 Guam Bar Examination Due to Circumstances Related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) (Supreme Court of Guam Adm. Order No. ADM20-218 Apr. 9, 2020):

In response to the growing public health concerns worldwide and in Guam, the Supreme Court has considered alternative approaches to novel issues and has modified numerous court practices in recent weeks. Based on current guidance from I Maga’hågan Guåhan (the Governor of Guam), the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services, and other authorities, it is unlikely that the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic will have abated by July 2020 to a degree that it would be prudent to administer the bar examination at that time.

Therefore, ... the Supreme Court ORDERS that the July 2020 administration of the Guam bar examination is cancelled, given the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The Board of Law Examiners (Board) will reschedule the examination to September 9-10, 2020.
