The summer 2022 offering of Raising the Bar is now available and it is jam packed with informative content that has made this newsletter such a vital resource on the bar exam.

Inside, you’ll find distinguished thinker commentaries on alternative paths to attorney licensure as well as recommendations on how to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion efforts at law schools and in law firms. You will also read an in-depth analysis on the National Conference of Bar Examiners’ (NCBE) development of the next generation bar exam and have a look at how Southwestern Law School increased their bar pass rates through an overhaul of their entire bar prep program. 

Not to be outdone, the summer edition’s Research Spotlight features four articles ranging from an empirical analysis of racial bias in the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) to a study of how attrition and transfers can ultimately affect bar exam pass rates.

In addition, the issue includes information on the latest bar-related events, as well as conferences, publications, posts and resources on the bar.
