Florida again postpones bar exam days before scheduled date

Florida postponed its bar exam on Sunday, two days before the test was scheduled to take place.

The Florida Board of Bar Examiners “determined that administering a secure and reliable remote bar examination in August was not technically feasible.” As a result of this cancellation, the Board created a supervised practice program that will allow bar applicants to practice under the supervision of a member of the Florida Bar starting in September.

The bar exam was originally scheduled in person for July 28 and 29, but, due to growing concerns about COVID-19, the test was delayed and moved to an online format.

The Board has indicated that another examination will be scheduled in October, but the specific date has yet to be determined. Applicants can also choose to take the exam in February 2021.
