“The court will ensure that there is a thorough and independent investigation.”

The Supreme Court of California today issued the following statement about the disclosure related to the July California Bar examination:

Over the weekend, State Bar officials advised the court of the inappropriate disclosure, to certain law school deans, of the general subjects to be tested on the essay and performance test portions of the July 2019 California Bar Examination, and of the State Bar’s subsequent decision to provide this same information to all test takers. The court understands and shares the concerns that this disclosure has generated. Exercising its oversight responsibilities over matters relating to bar admissions, the court will ensure that there is a thorough and independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, and that appropriate steps are taken to protect the integrity of the bar examination and identify and address any consequences.
