Why this pandemic is a good time to stop forcing prospective lawyers to take bar exams

This post takes an in-depth look at the problems with giving in-person bar exams during the pandemic and, more broadly, about whether it makes sense to retain the exam system. The authors, who call for an end to bar exams, are: Donna Saadati-Soto, Pilar Margarita Hernández Escontrías [UCI law almuna], Alyssa Leader and Emily Croucher [UCI law alumna]. The solution they are proposing is diploma privilege. [Subscription required, you can request an electronic copy of the article by sending an email to communications@uci.edu.]
