Jeremy recently blogged about bar exam waivers and discussed Andrea Boyack's excellent article discussing the contract issues relating to them ( I plan to use Boyack's article in my contracts and business law classes to help students "issue spot" and understand these legal concepts in a relevant context). The bar exam waivers are particularly problematic given the reports by bar exam takers about the lack of safety protocols followed by those who administered the bar exam. The ABA Journal reports that North Carolina bar exam takers have complained about people not wearing masks, dirty restrooms, and a lack of sanitation procedures for pencils, tables and computer toggles. Colorado bar exam takers have another reason to be concerned - one asymptomatic exam taker tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after taking the exam.
