In response to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Court of Appeals of Maryland has determined that the state cannot safely administer an in-person Uniform Bar Examination in September. In response, the court has authorized the Maryland State Board of Law Examiners to administer an online, remotely proctored Maryland Bar Exam using questions prepared by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. The court also authorized refunds for anyone who signed up for the exam desiring to receive a Uniform Bar Examination score. Above the Law reports that Maryland officials are in conversations with D.C. officials about a limited reciprocity agreement recognizing each other’s scores since there is so much cross-over between the two jurisdictions.
