New Policies for Phones and Personal Belongings at the February 2019 Bar Exam

We will provide secure phone storage each day of the exam. Each examinee may bring one cell phone to be stored. We will make reasonable efforts to keep stored phones secure; however, the Board is not responsible for lost or damaged phones. Phones that have been stored cannot be accessed during the exam or during lunch breaks on Wednesday and Thursday of the exam.

In order to enhance safety and security, examinees can no longer leave backpacks, bags, lunches, study materials, or any other Prohibited Item anywhere at the site. We will not provide a Personal Belongings Area at the site for these items. Examinees may store one phone, and they may bring Required Items and Permitted Items into the exam room in a clear plastic zip-lock bag. No other items are allowed anywhere at the site. Any unattended or Prohibited Items found at the site will be disposed of.

The February 2019 Texas Bar Exam will be administered at the Austin Convention Center, which is located at 500 East Cesar Chavez Street. Please note that the Austin Convention Center is not the same venue as the Palmer Events Center.
