Building a Better Bar

Hat tip to Prof. Natalie Rodriguez!  

Speaking of hope, here's a new article entitled "Building a Better Bar: The Twelve Building Blocks of Minimum Competency." https://iaals.du.edu/publications/building-better-bar    The prelude argues that bar exams should be open book, using written problems only (no multiple-choice questions), set in practice settings, with more time for responding to questions.

What Indiana did comes close: open-book with no multiple-choice questions. The results came back quickly and were the best in years. https://abaforlawstudents.com/2020/09/15/caught-up-in-the-covid-chaos-this-state-remodeled-the-bar-exam/
