We acknowledge and accept the criticism that has been directed at the court and the Board of Bar Examiners. Our inability to offer the bar examination in August was a failure. We apologize for that failure. I can’t guarantee you that the path forward will be flawless, but I can guarantee you that we have learned from this mistake and that it will not be repeated.
— Chief Justice Charles Canady of the Florida Supreme Court, apologizing to all candidates for the state’s bar exam that was supposed to take place earlier this week, via video. The bar exam was canceled at the last minute due to technical issues. Canady promised that Florida would hold a bar exam, “one way or another,” in October.
