Legal News: NJ Announces Online Bar Exam in October

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

The New Jersey in-person bar exam, originally scheduled for July 2020, then postponed until early September due to the coronavirus, has now been fully canceled.

Those planning to take the fall bar exam will need to take it remotely under a new Supreme Court order announced Wednesday. New Jersey joins Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, which had already moved their July in-person exams to September before canceling them in favor of the Oct. 5-6 online test. 

Key Changes: New Jersey's decision to switch to an Online Bar Exam voids their ability to participate in the UBE admission reciprocity. Presently, NJ has announced reciprocity with MA and ML only. The Bar Exam will consist of half of the information as the traditional exam (1 MPT, 3 MEE, and 100 MBE).
