About 20 recent law school graduates who were scheduled to take the August bar exam express their disappointment at the exam’s postponement in front of the Supreme Court in Tallahassee August 19.

Chief Justice Charles Canady has issued a video apology to bar exam applicants and the public over failures in pandemic procedures for the August 2020 Florida bar examination. These failures led to a late cancellation Sunday of an exam scheduled for today.

“We acknowledge and accept the criticism that has been directed at the court and the Board of Bar Examiners,” Canady said. “Our inability to offer the bar examination in August was a failure. We apologize for that failure.”
