2008 Virginia Bar Exam Information Including Hotel Accommodations

July 2008 Virginia Bar Exam in Roanoke, Virginia

The July exam will be held in Roanoke, Virginia on Tuesday, July 29, and Wednesday, July 30. The exam is given over two-days, with the essays and short-answer questions on Tuesday and the multiple-choice Multistate Bar Exam on Wednesday. The exam is held at the Roanoke Civic Center. While the Roanoke area can accommodate the approximately 1500 people taking the summer exam, hotel rooms near the Roanoke Civic Center fill up fast. To help you select accommodations, CAAS has prepared a list of hotels where Mason Law alumni have stayed in the past.  View the list on our website: Hotels in Roanoke - July 2008 Bar Exam.

To help ease some of the pressure of the bar exam, Alumni Services will provide lunch each day of the bar exam and a post-bar reception. All of these offerings are free, so please plan to join us!

**On both days of the exam during the lunch break, a buffet will be provided on the Mezzanine Level of the Roanoke Civic Center for all Mason Law graduates taking the exam. Vegetarian options will be available each day.

**On July 30, immediately after the multi-state portion of the exam, the law school will host a cocktail reception for all alumni and their guests on the Mezzanine Level of the Roanoke Civic Center.

If you are interested in all or some of these offerings, please RSVP on or before July 22 by using the online form
