ABA Urges States to OK Limited Law Practice Without Bar Exam (1)

The American Bar Association Board of Governors approved a resolution late Tuesday that urges states to immediately adopt emergency rules authorizing recent law graduates unable to take a bar exam because of the coronavirus pandemic to engage in limited practice of law.

The ABA board resolution seeks to allow 2019 and 2020 graduates of association-approved law schools to practice under the supervision of a licensed attorney, if the July bar exam in their jurisdiction is canceled or postponed due to concerns about the virus, according to an ABA statement. The group’s recommendation also extends to judicial law clerks who graduated in prior years.

State bars already have been considering different types of fixes to deal with scheduled July bar exam dates. Some states have already postponed their scheduled July bar exam, while others are considering a delayed summer exam date, only allowing small test-taker groups, or enacting “emergency diploma privileges,”

Russia government resigns as Putin proposes reforms that could extend his grip on power

Putin thanked members of the government for their work but added that “not everything worked out.” Putin added that in the near future he would meet with each member of the cabinet. The mass resignation includes Medvedev.

The surprise announcement came after Putin proposed constitutional amendments that would strengthen the powers of the prime minister and parliament at the expense of the presidency.

Taking power from the presidency and handing it to parliament could signal a power shift that has been long speculated about in Russia.

Putin’s critics have suggested that he is considering various scenarios to retain control of the country after his presidential term ends in 2024, including the option of becoming prime minister with extended powers.
