    You’ll need to check out the Bar Examiner’s website for the specific jurisdiction you’re taking the exam in to find out this information. The information should be there when it is available. Keep in mind, it may not be released yet for July. For example, here is a link to the New Jersey July 2021 schedule detailing breaks throughout the day. All jurisdictions do give a lunch break. https://www.njbarexams.org/faq


    I was curious to find out what the schedule is when you write the bar exam online. I have heard that in some jurisdictions you take a break after 50 questions on the MBE day and a break after three essays on the MEE day but I can’t find this in writing.
    I just found out that I did not pass after writing it in person twice and I’m frustrated with the process and it was suggested to me to write it online as that’s how I have studied for it with all my practice and mbe questions.
