Law deans ask National Conference of Bar Examiners to conduct "thorough investigation" of drop in exam scores
According to the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, 80 deans representing mostly middle-ranked and public law schools have signed a letter to the NCBE asking for a "thorough investigation of the administration and scoring of the July 2014 bar exam" in light of the double-digit drop in bar pass rates experienced by several schools. The NCBE has said the drop in exams scores is due to a weaker graduating class rather than any problem with the exam or the scoring. A few weeks ago, we told you about similar kerfuffle between the NCBE and the Dean of Brooklyn Law School.
