ABA Approves Thomas Jefferson Law School’s teach-out plan, giving TJLS ABA accreditation for 3 more years

Posted in Uncategorized on January 16, 2020 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE. North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

A teach-out plan for Thomas Jefferson School of Law, allowing limited accreditation until the end of the spring 2023 term, has been approved by the council of the ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.

After placing the San Diego law school on probation in November 2017, the council withdrew its ABA approval in last summer. An administrative panel affirmed that decision in November 2019.

Under the teach-out agreement, Thomas Jefferson’s ABA accreditation will cover current law students and transient students. If the law school loses its state license or fails to uphold obligations listed in the teach-out plan, the council retains its authority to remove ABA accreditation before the spring 2023 term ends.

The plan allows current students to complete their education at Thomas Jefferson’s campus in downtown San Diego.

The law school’s ultimate bar passage rate, which comprises 2016 graduates, is 63.83%. Its first-time pass rate for 2018 was 26.43%.

Amid its ABA accreditation problems, the school sought and received California accreditation in 2018, and it intends to operate as a state-accredited school after its ABA accreditation ends.

According to a statement the law school released in November, it would no longer admit students into its ABA-approved program. And starting in summer 2020, students would be enrolled into its state-accredited program.

6 Weeks until the Bar Exam: What Are You Doing to Pass the Bar Exam?

Posted in Uncategorized on January 14, 2020 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE. North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

There are 6 weeks until the bar exam. Where should you be today?

Follow Your Schedule

By this time you should have set a realistic work schedule that allows for lecture time, review time, practice time and relaxation time.

Maintain your concentration level by varying your study activities, i.e. if you are reading an outline and losing focus, start practicing questions.

Know Your Law

You should be trying to commit to memory the black letter law.

Knowing the law means that you internalize the material in such a way that you truly “own” it and can spit it out on demand. This does not mean that you recognize the material or it seems familiar to you. The bar exam requires you to know the rules with precision and specificity and to have a solid understanding of the rules.

Continue to do practice questions, essays and performance tests.

Know Your State Bar Exam

You should know your bar exam like the back of your hand. Everyone must prepare for the MBE, but you should know the ins and outs of your state exam. Tailor your studies to your state exam.

The 11th Circuit Dismissed a Lawsuit Accusing a Tech Company of Georgia’s Bar Exam Grading Errors

Posted in Uncategorized on January 13, 2020 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE. North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

Law grads who were wrongly told that they failed the Georgia bar exam cannot recover damages against the software company they accused of producing the incorrect scores, the 11th Circuit has ruled last week. The per curiam opinion upheld dismissal of claims in a would-be class action for ordinary negligence, strict liability, negligent design and defamation.

The alleged glitch occurred during a rescoring process on the July 2015 and February 2016 bar exams.

Under Georgia’s scoring system, anyone who fails to get a 115 on the multistate exam automatically fails and the essays are not graded. Essays are scored for those with multistate scores above the cutoff. Those who are within five points of the passing grade of 270 get their essays regraded, and the higher essay score is used.

The plaintiffs alleged in their suit that, because of a software glitch, the regraded essays were not properly taken into consideration. They blamed the company, ILG Technologies, for the mishap.

The appeals court said the plaintiffs’ claims for defamation failed because they were unable to show that ILG Technologies published the bar exam results. ILG Technologies had transmitted the results to Georgia’s Office of Bar Admissions, which published the faulty information.

The plaintiffs’ other claims failed because of Georgia’s economic loss rule, which generally bars recovery by people suing over a contractual duty when they are not parties to the contract, the appeals court said.

Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and the Case for the UBE; Indiana Looks to Join the UBE

Posted in Uncategorized on January 9, 2020 by barprofs

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE. North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

Currently, 36 states use the UBE. Indiana will be the latest state to join the UBE. Here is what Indiana and its neighboring states of Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan are doing for their bar exams.

Indiana

The Study Commission on the Future of the Indiana Bar Exam has completed its review of the state’s bar exam and is now recommending the Hoosier state join the UBE movement. Since Indiana already uses the Multistate Bar Exam and the Multistate Performance Test components of the UBE, completely transitioning would require the Indiana essay portion to be replaced with the Multistate Essay Exam.

Indiana’s overall pass rate for July 2019 was 65%

Illinois

Illinois switched to the UBE in July 2019, about three years after the Illinois State Bar Association endorsed a recommendation that the state adopt the national test. Illinois passing score is 266.

Illinois’s overall pass rate for July 2019 was 71%

Ohio

Ohio plans to implement the UBE in July 2020. Ohio will only have to swap its 12 essay questions for the MEE in order to switch to the national exam since it is presently using the MBE and MPT.

Essays on the current Ohio exam count for a little more than 53% of the total score. However, the UBE would shift the weight so the MBE’s 200 multiple choice questions would comprise 50% of the score while the multistate essay exam would make up 30%. Ohio’s passing score will be 270.

Ohio’s overall pass rate for July 2019 was 73%

Kentucky

After a multiyear comprehensive review of its bar exam, the Kentucky Supreme Court followed
the advice of the Kentucky Bar Admission Review Commission and rejected the adoption of the UBE in December 2016. But retired Kentucky Justice Bill Cunningham, who co-led the commission, expects the Bluegrass State will reverse course since the UBE failed by only one vote back then, and the composition of the state’s supreme court today seems to be more favorable toward the national test.

Kentucky’s overall pass rate for July 2019 was 66%

Michigan

Michigan appears to have no plans to even consider adopting the UBE. Currently the state’s bar exam consists of 15 Michigan-specific essay questions and the MBE.

Michigan’s overall pass rate for July 2019 was 61%.
