COVID-19 – New Jersey July 2020 Bar Examination Postponed Until Fall 2020
The Supreme Court and the Board of Bar Examiners announced today that, due to the ongoing public health emergency arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the New Jersey bar examination will not be administered on July 28 and July 29, 2020 as previously scheduled. The bar examination has been postponed until the Fall. For full details, see Supreme Court Order, dated April 6, 2020 by clicking here.
If you already submitted your complete July 2020 bar examination application, you do not need to take any further action. If you already began your application for the July 2020 examination, you may continue completing your application. We will be updating our website to notify you regarding extended deadlines.
The Board of Bar Examiners, in consultation with the Supreme Court, will continue to closely monitor public health and safety guidelines, including prohibitions against large gatherings, related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the event that limitations on large gatherings continue to interfere with a Fall administration of the New Jersey bar examination, alternative means for testing of applicants for New Jersey bar admission will be devised and announced.
