The National Conference of Bar Examiners has sought the input of the US legal market as it continues its plans to implement a new bar entrance exam.
The new exam will place greater emphasis on essential lawyering skills while decreasing the number of legal subjects tested.
The proposed changes are the result of an effort to evaluate the national bar exam, which began in 2018. This public consultation, which closed on 18th April, followed a 3 year internal research period which itself came to a close in January 2021. The new bar exam is scheduled to start in 2026.
