The Commission for the Future of the California Bar Exam

Post by tlsadmin3 » Tue Oct 27, 2020 3:43 pm

On October 26th the Supreme Court of California approved a charter for the Blue Ribbon Commission that will work on the future of the California Bar Exam. The commission will come up with recommendations on possible changes such as whether or not to adopt alternative testing, additional testing or tools, to help ensure that attorneys are competent. The commission is also going to study how the Bar Exam and any of its parts should be administered. Do you think California will hold a remote Bar Exam for February 2021?

You mean just for covid or for long term? If covid forces states to adapt to try new emergency stuff that ends up working, I could see society not feeling a need to back track later. The ABA has been slowly easing into partially online and hybrid schools. I mention that since they influence the exam obviously. At a bare minimum I could easily see the fybx being online forever moving forward, cuz really....why the heck not. It's for online students mostly anyways for that part of it, many out of state with a burden if travel for it.
