Bar Curve Is Steeper in NY

Students studying for the NY Bar Examination this July will likely feel a heavier load.  The minimum passing score just rose by fifteen points.

Criticism of the point change continues from the president of the New York Bar Association.  A 13-member committee, including members of the bar association, law school deans, and bar examiners has been created to evaluate the relevance of the examination.   

Read an article on the controversial change that appeared in The National Law Journal.  (els) (Thanks to my research assistant MS for bringing this article to my attention).
