Professor Ben Bratman Featured Writer On Best Practices For Legal Education Regarding Bar Exam Reform
Professor Ben Bratman is a featured blogger through Oct. 11 at the Best Practices for Legal Education blog, discussing bar exam reform, its intersection with legal education, and the teaching of practical skills in law schools.
Bratman's posts this week at Best Practices for Legal Education include:
- "Musings on the Bar Exam and Legal Education’s Attitude toward it"
- "Bar Exam Musings, Part II: Skillfully Changing the Bar Exam Narrative"
- "The 25 Most Important Lawyering Skills?"
In Bar Exam Musings, Part II, Bratman writes, "It should not be so novel an idea to increase the range of skills tested on the bar exam (or at least enhance the testing of existing skills) instead of increasing the number of subjects tested on the bar exam." The Best Practices blog is maintained by Professor Mary Lynch at the Center for Excellence in Law Teaching, Albany Law School.
