Merrill Balassone in a California Courts news release:  “The California Supreme Court on Thursday issued an order expanding the pathway to a California law license, allowing thousands more law school graduates with qualifying prior bar exam scores to work as fully licensed attorneys after completing supervised practice hours.”

The order grants the request of the State Bar’s trustees “to expand the temporary, supervised provisional licensure program to include applicants who received a score between 1390 and 1439 on any California Bar Examination administered between February 2020 and July 2015.”


Supreme Court again postpones bar exam, lowers passing score, and directs temporary provisional licensing for 2020 grads
