Update: Early bar exam petition

The MSBA has filed a petition with the Court requesting amendments to the Rules for Admission to the Bar. The proposed amendments would allow law students to take the bar exam prior to graduation, provided they meet certain criteria as certified by their law school. By passing the bar exam early, students can begin employment sooner. Sixteen states already allow some sort of early bar exam. Michael Boulette, Sarah Soucie Eyberg, and George Henry of the MSBA’s New Lawyers Section drafted the petition.
