Louisiana Bar Exam will be held July 27th & October 10th

Posted by Chris Short | May 13, 2020 | 0 Comments

The bar exam is the culminations of decades of hard work. One last hurdle that law students hoping to join the ranks of the Louisiana Bar must clear before entering the practice of law. With the current Covid-19 Pandemic and social distancing guidelines, some questioned whether a bar exam would even be held this year. The Supreme Court has now answered that question. 

In a May 8, 2020 press release, the Louisiana Supreme Court announced that they will be holding two one day bar exams, on July 27, 2020 and then again on October 10, 2020. The originally scheduled three day exam that was set to begin on July 20, 2020 is accordingly canceled.

The exam will be held in the following cities: New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, and Lake Charles. Seating for the exams will be limited, and priority and choice of location will be given to: 1) first time takers based on when their application and fee are received, and 2) those repeating the exam based on when they applied and paid their fees. The limited seats will allow the Supreme Court to ensure that all social distancing procedures can be safely followed.

If you or someone you know is hoping to take the bar exam this year, be sure to alert them to the new procedures and format. Hopefully after what will undoubtedly be a very long and stressful day, they will join us in the practice of law in the great state of Louisiana. Hoping that you and  your families are staying safe.
