A Question of New York Law: Should It Be Taught in Law Schools and Tested on the Bar Exam?
A panel discussion about New York’s recent switch to the Uniform Bar Exam and the issues it raises, including topics related to licensure (should we have alternative pathways, for example?) and legal education. This program will both educate and solicit opinions from the practicing bar about what's been going on in the last few years.
This program carries NO MCLE credits; it is for informational and open forum discussion purposes only.
