March LSAT Cancelled, July Bar Exam Monitored

March 18, 2020

The Law School Admission Test scheduled for March 30, 2020, has been cancelled.

“Cancelling the March test is a difficult step, but we believe it is the most responsible course of action to protect test takers, test center personnel, and the broader community,” the Law School Admission Council wrote in an update on its website.

The Council is hopeful that the April and June tests will proceed as planned, but will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.

Meanwhile, the National Conference of Bar Examiners has created a web page with COVID-19 updates related to the bar exam, MPRE, and other tests.

The agency noted on the site that while it does not administer the bar exam, it is “in close contact with jurisdiction bar admission agencies as they consider possible options for the July exam in the event that shutdowns and prohibitions against large gatherings remain in effect.”
