This pandemic has caused a lot of interruptions in our lives. It has put people out of work, and it is also keeping some people from starting a career. This hour, we hear how recent law school graduates are preparing for the Connecticut Bar Exam amongst the pandemic.
The Bar Exam is a two day exam, normally taken at a testing facility. But because of the pandemic, students will have to take the exam entirely online. Without passing the Connecticut Bar, they are unable to practice and in some cases, even receive a job offer.
Coming up, we will hear how these students normally prepare for the Bar Exam, and their concerns for how it will be administered this year.
Also what’s diploma privilege? Are you preparing for the Bar Exam? We want to hear from you.
