Legal News: Indiana Bar Exam: Online, Open Book, & Honor System

While Michigan’s ExamSoft platform got hacked, Indiana’s ILG-based platform never got off the ground at all. Testing on Friday wouldn’t work and the state delayed the exam a week to work out the kinks.

Indiana Supreme Court stated:

"The Court now finds that it is not possible to administer the remote bar exam on August 4 using the format promised by the vendor. Any further effort to test the testing software or to continue the exam a second time would be a disservice to applicants. The Court further finds that the pandemic conditions continue to prevent a large-scale, in-person examination of all applicants currently registered for the exam.

Under the new format, the bar exam will be open-book with no live monitoring or proctoring. Also, applicants will receive the exam questions and submit their responses by email. The short answer questions will be emailed Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 8:25 a.m. and responses must be submitted by 11:30 a.m. Essay questions will be sent at 12:40 p.m. and answers must be returned by 4:45 p.m. The order says the Indiana Board of Law Examiners will provide applicants with instructions on receiving questions and submitting responses not later than Friday.
