The Tennessee Supreme Court entered an order yesterday that reduces the seating of the July 2020 bar exam that is scheduled for July 28 and July 29. The court also approved a policy that establishes protocol for seating applicants. The policy gives priority seating at the July exam to 2019 or 2020 graduates of Tennessee law schools who are taking the exam for the first time. If seats remain, additional levels of seating priorities have been established. Those who cannot be seated at the July exam will be seated at the October exam, scheduled for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Additionally, applicants who will be seated at the October exam have the opportunity to transfer their application to the February 2021 exam without additional fees. The Administrative Office of the Courts has the full story.
