The California bar examiners have released the essays and performance tests from the February 2017 bar exam. You can find all six essays, as well as performance test A and B, here: February 2017 Bar Exam Essays and PTs
Bar results for the February 2017 bar exam will come out on May 12, 2017 – just one month from today!
Sometimes the bar exam, and studying for it, seems like a chess game where every move might need to be calculated and one misstep could mean disaster. But, things are changing (not necessarily for the better or that it will be easier, but things are changing). As of July 2017, the California bar exam will cease to be a three day bar exam. Will it become easier? Will pass rates go up? How should examinees prepare differently for a two day bar exam? This will all remain to be seen. But, as the California Bar Examiners (and ultimately the California State Supreme Court) grapple with how this exam should continue to be administered, calibrated and scored, there will be changes on the horizon.
All the best of luck to those who are waiting on results!
