New York Reverses Course, Will Seat Graduates Of Out-Of-State Law Schools For September Bar Exam

Following up on my previous posts (links below):  New York State Board of Law Examiners, Update Regarding the September 2020 Bar Examination:

NYSBA (2017)The application process for the September bar exam is now complete. All candidates who successfully completed an application to sit for the bar exam will be assigned seats, provided their proof of eligibility is timely submitted and demonstrates compliance with the requirements of Court of Appeals Rule 520.3 or 520.6. See Board Rule 6000.4. The deadline to submit such proof has been extended until July 15, 2020. No handwriting specimen will be required.

Candidates will be notified regarding their seat assignments after the review of eligibility proofs has been completed.

The deadline to complete the laptop registration with Examsoft has been extended to Monday, June 29, 2020 at 4:30 P.M. Eastern Time.

Candidates are reminded that public health concerns may ultimately preclude the administration of the September bar exam in New York. Please continue to monitor this website for updates.
