NCBE Seeks Public Comment On Proposed New Bar Exam, NCBE Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Bar Exam Changes:

NCBE (2020)A new bar exam slated to debut in 2026, which will test more skills and fewer subjects than its current incarnation, is now ready for public comment from legal professionals.

The National Conference of Bar Examiners has asked the legal community to weigh in on preliminary outlines of exam content that, once finalized, will guide future test takers, law schools and exam drafters as the new exam approaches.

The NCBE, which develops bar exam content for 54 U.S. jurisdictions, has published the preliminary Content Scope Outlines for the next generation of the bar exam on its website. The bar is the test of legal skills and knowledge that most U.S. attorneys must pass before licensure.

NCBE is asking members of the U.S. legal community to review and comment on the Content Scope Outlines. The comment period will be open until April 18.
