state-bar-welcomeThe State Bar of California has announced changes to the bar exam. California has been a three-day bar exam with six one-hour essay questions, two three-hour performance tests, and the MBE. However, beginning with the July 2017 test administration, the exam will now be two days:

  • One morning session with three one-hour essay questions.
  • One afternoon session with two one-hour essay questions, and one 90-minute performance test.
  • One morning and afternoon session, each with 100 MBE questions.

The written portion and MBE will be weighted equally at 50% and the scope of subjects tested has not changed. At this time, the State Bar hasn’t determined the exact dates of the test or other test details so make sure to check the State Bar website regularly if you are considering taking the Calfornia bar.
