Connecticut Changes Bar Exam (NYers no longer can take it at the same time)

The Connecticut Bar Examining Committee recently voted to change the essay portion of its Bar Examination.

Beginning in February 2010, up to half of the essay portion of the exam will be drawn from the Multistate Essay Examination as produced by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. As a result, the CT Bar Examination will no longer be administered on Wednesday and Thursday, but will instead be administered on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thus, it will no longer be possible to sit for certain bar exams concurrently with CT, such as NY; however, individuals will now be able to sit concurrently in other jurisdictions where this was previously impossible, such as MA. More information can be found here.
