Louisiana Supreme Court waives bar exam requirement for qualifying candidates


NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — The Louisiana Supreme Court announced Wednesday that it has waived the requirement of the bar examination for qualified candidates.

This comes after the Louisiana Supreme Court postponed the bar exam over COVID-19 concerns.

In June 1953, the Louisiana Supreme Court waived the requirement for the written examination for certain candidates during the existence of the Korean Conflict.

Those who qualify must complete 25 hours of continuing legal education and the Louisiana State Bar Association’s “Transition Into Practice” mentoring program by Dec. 31, 2021.
