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 a post on the Volokh Conspiracy entitled More on Reducing the Pain of Taking the Bar Exam: “In the original post, I argued that many students spend too much time preparing for the bar exam and attending prep courses. Since the exam is primarily a test of memorization, many people can pass simply by studying the books at home, and taking practice tests (which is what I did myself, and I know quite a few other people who successfully did the same thing).” You can read more about the post here.
