The Minnesota Judicial Branch continues to carefully monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and to coordinate closely with statewide partners including the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB). In response to the March 20, 2020 Court Order, the office of the Board of Law Examiners is closed to the public and is not available for visits from applicants or others, even to drop off applications. We encourage applicants for the February 2021 bar examination and admission on motion to submit your applications by U.S. Mail.
Board staff is still working and anticipates COVID-19 having only a minimal impact on the processing of applications.
We encourage you to contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your applicant portal if you have additional questions. Calls to the office may go to voicemail and your message will be returned as quickly as possible. Many of the commonly asked questions may be answered in the Frequently Asked Questions or the Resources section.
July 2020 Applicants (updated 5/20/20):
The Board recognizes the significant impact of COVID-19. Seeking assistance as needed is a healthy response to stress and does not need to be disclosed in your bar application unless there is related conduct that you are required to disclose or it negatively impacts your current ability to meet the essential eligibility requirements. The Board encourages applicants to contact Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers for additional resources. Information provided to LCL is completely confidential and is not shared with the Board.
