    09.25.15 “Bar Exam Not the Best Test of a Good Lawyer” Writes Dean Nick Allard in The New York Times Op-Ed

    “No one who graduates from an A.B.A.-accredited law school with a strong G.P.A. should have to take the bar exam. The current exam is very expensive, and not a great measure of competence to actually practice law,” Dean Nick Allard wrote in an op-ed published in the September 24 edition of The New York Times.

    In the op-ed, Dean Allard questions the role and influence of the National Conference of Bar Examiners and states that the A.B.A., courts and law schools should take back control of the future of the profession and overhaul the way in which we evaluate the preparedness of graduates to serve as practicing lawyers.
