Pandemic | Breakout: The Impact of the Pandemic on Bar Admissions and Testing Activities
The COVID 19 pandemic has created significant challenges for regulators around the world. Law schools have cancelled classes or moved to remote instruction. In many jurisdictions, the shutdown caused by the pandemic also led to the cancellation of bar admission programs and bar exams. This breakout session will look at how regulators have responded to those challenges and how they can adapt moving forward in a way that meets the needs of the profession and those seeking entry into the profession during Covid.
