This week, a number of states were holding in-person bar exams, complete with formidable safety protocols as defenses. Nevertheless, a group of Colorado bar takers were notified shortly after completion of their in-person bar exams that they were in close proximity with a person who tested positive for COVID-19. Here are the initial details: https://www.cpr.org/2020/07/30/law-student-tests-positive-for-coronavirus-after-taking-colorado-bar-exam/. Previously, recent graduates from the state's two law schools along with many other people sent a petition to the Colorado Supreme Court seeking an alternative licensure pathway, namely, diploma privilege, arguing that conditions were unsafe for individuals to take in-person bar exams. https://www.denverpost.com/2020/07/07/colorado-bar-exam-july-coronavirus-covid-cu-du/.
