Above the Law and the Adjunct Law Professor Blog both blogged about a story that appeared in the October 12th National Law Journal. The story explains that 10 states have signed on and will switch to a uniform bar exam developed by none other than the National Conference of Bar Examiners. For those that don’t know the NCBE folks, they write the MPRE.
Don’t be scared though. New York and a handful of other states have decided not to go with the uniform bar exam format.

From the Law School Innovation Blog: “The Massachusetts state supreme court has ordered that a graduate of an online law school be allowed to take the bar exam.

From the Law Librarian Blog: Last month, the ABA’s House of Delegates concurred in Resolution 112B which deleted Interpretation 302-7 of the Standards for Approval of Law Schools concerning bar examination preparation courses. Prior to this action, prep courses could not count toward law school graduation. Law schools are now free to require the successful completion of a bar course as a condition of graduation.
