National Law Journal, Nationalized Bar Exam Endorsed by ABA:
Bar admission authorities across the nation should move quickly to adopt the uniform bar exam, the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates decided Monday.
The house adopted a resolution endorsing the exam, which enables takers to carry their scores to other jurisdictions that use the standard test. Twenty-one states are now using the standard exam, or will begin using it by 2017. The ABA’s Law Student Division introduced the resolution, arguing that it increases mobility for young lawyers and reduces their bar admission costs.
