Seating capped for February bar exam

The Missouri Board of Law Examiners will allow no more than 270 people to take the February 2023 bar exam. 

The board on Sept. 19 said the cap would prevent the number of applicants from exceeding the available seating capacity for testing.  Applications will be accepted in the order received, up to the maximum number of 270. 

Filing for the February exam opened on Sept. 1 and continues through Oct. 1, with additional late deadline periods extending to Dec. 31.  However, it is anticipated the cap will be reached prior to the final filing deadline. 

The February exam is typically the smaller of the two Missouri bar exams held each year. This year, 234 students took the test. The last time a class exceeded 270 takers was in 2019.
