An Indiana Supreme Court order issued on April 8 allows law school grads to serve as graduate legal interns amid COVID-19 pandemic.

From the order:

The Supreme Court therefore ORDERS that any graduate of an ABA accredited law school who graduated after November 2019, and has not sat for a bar examination in Indiana or any other jurisdiction prior to February 2021, may serve as a graduate legal intern under Admission and Discipline Rule 2.1, Section 1(b) until February 28, 2021. If the graduate sits for the February 2021 Indiana bar examination, the graduate’s status as a graduate legal intern will continue until notified of the results of the examination. If the graduate passes the examination, the status continues until the first opportunity thereafter for formal admission to the Bar of Indiana. If the graduate fails the examination, the status ends once the determination of failure is final after exhausting any appeals. Further adjustments and arrangements may be forthcoming as circumstances warrant.
