Pursuant to Supreme Court order, dated July 15, 2020, the Board of Bar Examiners is pleased to announce that it has entered into reciprocity agreements with the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts and Tennessee for the portability of scores from the October 5-6, 2020 remote bar examination. The Board of Bar Examiners will continue to seek reciprocity with other jurisdictions who determine to offer the NCBE’s October 5-6, 2020 remote bar examination and will provide a listing and further updates accordingly.
Pursuant to the reciprocal agreements, the Board of Bar Examiners will automatically report each applicant's score on the October 2020 remote bar examination to all jurisdictions having a reciprocal arrangement with New Jersey. Prior to taking the examination, applicants who do not wish to have their scores reported to other jurisdictions may opt out of this automatic reporting. Instructions for opting out and additional detailed information will be posted to the Board of Bar Examiners website at a later date. To be eligible for admission to a reciprocal jurisdiction under these agreements, applicants must attain a passing score as set by the jurisdiction to which they wish to apply, meet all other eligibility requirements for admission set by that jurisdiction, and submit an application for admission as required by that jurisdiction.
