In accordance with Section 12 of Chapter 11 of the Massachusetts General Laws, the Office of the State Auditor has conducted a performance audit of the Board of Bar Examiners (BBE) for the period July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2018. In this performance audit, we determined whether BBE’s evaluations of the character and fitness of all petitioners for admission to the Massachusetts bar were conducted in accordance with Section 7 of Supreme Judicial Court Rule 3:01 and whether BBE provided qualified applicants with testing accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Our audit revealed no significant instances of noncompliance by BBE that must be reported under generally accepted government auditing standards.
