Tennessee Supreme Court Issues Order as July Bar Exam Reaches Capacity

The Supreme Court of Tennessee has issued an order granting the Board of Law Examiners permission to close applications for the July Uniform Bar Exam.

In a statement, the Tennessee Supreme Court said that capacity at the Knoxville and Memphis locations was reached last week and upon reaching capacity at the testing location in Nashville, applications for the July UBE will close.

Any applicant with a submitted and paid application as of the time capacity has been reached will have until May 20, 2022, in which to complete the application process. If there are more applications submitted and paid than there are available seats when the application closes, those without a seat will be placed on a wait­list for Nashville. If a seat is not available by June 15, 2022, those applicants without a seat will be given a refund of the filing fee and withdrawn from the examination.

“Rather than abruptly close applications, the Board and Court chose to provide notice to potential applicants that applications may have to close early,” said Amy Pepke, president of the Board of Law Examiners. “Additionally, the Board increased seating by 20% more than in previous years but this is insufficient to cover the unprecedented increase.”
