The Recorder reports: Calif. Bar Exam Shortened to Two Days
Future law school graduates, rejoice. The California Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to shorten the bar examination from three days to two days, starting in July 2017.
Under the changes, studied for years and approved in 2015 by the State Bar Board of Trustees, applicants will complete five one-hour essay questions and one 90-minute performance test on the first day. On the second day, they'll answer 200 multiple-choice questions on the multistate bar examination.
And..."Ending a 17-year bid for accreditation, the University of La Verne College of Law has gained full approval from the American Bar Association." More in the Recorder here.
