BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Bar Examination has been postponed until fall because of coronavirus, the state's Supreme Judicial Court and Board of Bar Examiners said Monday morning.
The exam was set for July 28 and 29, but will now be moved to a yet-to-be-determined date this fall "due to the ongoing public health emergency arising from the COVID-19 pandemic."
In a statement, the Board of Bar Examiners and SJC said they'll continue to monitor guidelines on public safety, including those related to large gatherings, which would keep the test from being administered.
"In the event that limitations on large gatherings continue to interfere with a fall administration of the Massachusetts bar examination, alternative means for testing of applicants for Massachusetts bar admission will be devised and announced," the statement read.
