The Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court and the Board of Bar Examiners (BBE) have announced that, due to seating limitations and safety concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the September 30 and October 1 in-person Massachusetts administration of the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) has been canceled. An alternative, remotely-administered exam for admission to the Massachusetts bar will be offered in lieu of the UBE on October 5 and 6, 2020.
In addition, Clerk Maura Doyle has announced that she would be extending the deadline until August 14, 2020 for which petitioners may choose to defer their petition from the remotely-administered exam on October 5-6, 2020 until the next available UBE administered by the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners.
