I recently posted on SSRN my article entitled Danger Ahead! – Will Your New Estate Planning Associate Know Texas Law? Here the abstract of the article:
The Texas Bar Examination has changed and may change again. Recent conversations with Texas estate planning attorneys have revealed a lack of knowledge of current and upcoming changes to the Texas Bar Examination, which are likely to result in first-year associates lacking even basic understanding of Texas wills and trusts concepts. This article explains how this situation has developed, the steps you may take to hire Texas law-prepared associates, and how you may influence the future of the bar exam.
