July 2026 Examination Announcement

The Florida Board of Bar Examiners has announced that it will retain the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) for the July 2026 Florida Bar Exam.

Changes to Test Specifications

On March 31, 2023, the board published revised Test Specifications for Part A of the General Bar Examination. The revised Test Specifications are effective beginning with the July 2023 exam. In addition, starting in July 2023, the board primarily will use multiple-choice questions to test Trusts and UCC Articles 3 and 9 when those subjects are on Part A of the General Bar Examination. The March 2023 Study Guide contains sample multiple-choice items in those subjects.
Image of the board's Seal. The central figure on the Seal is a griffin, a universally accepted symbol for vigilance. The griffin is holding the Nordic symbol for fidelity, which comes from Nordic mythology. Beneath the griffin appears the Latin phrase “Clemens iustitiae custodia.” Custodia is the word used for keeping watch in order to protect, and Clementia is used technically for leniency in punishing offenses. Closely translated, this phrase means “Compassionate and vigilant protection of justice.” Expanded, this would mean the watchful protection (or preservation) of justice, a watchful or protective preservation which is compassionate or merciful. The Arabic numerals \"1955\" appear at the bottom of the seal, indicating the year of the creation of the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.Copyright ©2011 - 2024 Florida Board of Bar Examiners.
