What Would Be Better Than The Bar Exam?
Election challenges continue, Krakens are released, Rick Schroder provides a critical look at America's cash bail system, and Bill Barr has some explaining to do.
But beyond all that, a new study takes a comprehensive look at the legal licensing process and the value of the status quo bar examination regime. It may not surprise anyone that the existing system does a poor job of providing the assurances of "minimum competence" that the public and the profession need, but this study does the hard work of backing that feeling up with data and, more importantly, outlining alternative licensing programs that would do better. AccessLex funded the study, and Aaron Taylor, Executive Director of the AccessLex Center for Legal Education Excellence joins the show to talk about it.
