Texas Deans’ Communication Regarding the 2020 Texas Bar Exam

Recognizing that “in recent days… the arc of the coronavirus has changed,” the deans of the ten Texas law schools have issued a new letter to the Texas Supreme Court and the Texas Board of Law Examiners “respectfully offer(ing) three alternatives” to this year’s bar exam plans, alternatives “that will protect the public, and also protect the health and well-being of bar takers. These alternatives also allow applicants the ability to utilize their degrees and to provide needed legal services to Texas individuals and businesses.”

The deans issued their letter on June 29, 2020. The first seating in Texas for the Summer 2020 bar exam is July 28-30.
