Lowest Bar Exam scores in nearly a decade prompts schools to seek answers, and state action

July 2014’s Multistate Bar Exam produced the lowest results in nearly a decade, spurring questions about test reliability and a search for alternatives.

About 80 law deans sought details on how questions were chosen and tests were scored, but the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) did not provide additional information, which the NCBE did not provide.

Additionally a few state's Bar Associations are making efforts for applicants to be able to "waive" the MBE portion of their state bar application. This is similar to Wisconsin's approach to licensing new attorneys.
