COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENTS - Updated July 13, 2020

  1. The Board has rescheduled the July 2020 bar exam to October 5-7, 2020, as described in this announcement (pdf). Additionally, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has authorized a limited license for July 2020 bar exam applicants.
  2. Applicants are reminded that character and fitness documentation, including fingerprinting for the purpose of our office getting criminal history records, is not due before the bar exam. However, because the exam will be administered remotely, applicants must submit to the board office before the exam a photo of their face, and a picture of their current license or other government-issued identification. This information can be uploaded using the "Upload Documents" feature in the online bar application portal. These will be used as part of the remote examination check-in process.
  3. The Board staff will continue to work remotely until further notice. Staff have ability to telework, but do not have the same access and ability to conduct all processes.

We continue to wish you good health.
