First it was the NBA season. Then March Madness and Spring Training. Now the Olympics.

In light of the unprecedented postponement and, in some cases, cancellation of scheduled events, tournaments, and games all over the globe, some of you bar candidates have wondered what will happen to the July 2020 California bar exam.

Will there be one? Will it be postponed, and if so, to when?

The answer no one wants to really hear is the only one we have right now. And that's that we just don't know. For that matter, neither does the State Bar or NCBE, but both have provided statements and links to check for the latest news, which we're providing to you below.

Even though we are working remotely and apart from one another as ordered by the governor, our Bar Secrets team is still here. Drs. Saccuzzo and Johnson have taken to Instagram @therealbarsecrets. You will find messages and mini-lessons there. And we will post breaking news as we learn of it. If you aren't already following us, you'll want to make sure you do so that you won't miss any important updates for the upcoming exams.

And please know that if you are our student or plan on being one, our course offerings and subscription periods will be flexible to adapt to whatever happens to the upcoming exam. If it gets pushed back, we will have your back and extend your access if necessary.

Be well. Stay safe. We will get through this.
