IN BRIEF: NCBE will offer materials for July bar exams, despite pandemic

NCBE said it made that decision because it “has determined that there will most likely be a sufficient number of July examinees to administer the exam,” in a statement on Tuesday. States including Florida, Texas and Minnesota, where governors have started to reopen their economies, have said they plan to move forward with July bar exams.
