Professor Robertson Advocates Alternatives to the July 2020 Bar Exam has published a letter to the editor from Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson advocating for alternatives to the July 2020 Bar Exam.  She argues that temporary licensing of graduates is a nonstarter. Law graduates cannot take on demanding jobs, then abandon work for the time necessary to study for a traditionally administered bar exam.  She urges the Supreme Court to use a shorter take-home bar exam or simply grant all Ohio law graduates a permanent license to practice, conditioned on continuing legal education or supervision some.

Her letter is available here:  This year’s law school grads can be verified as ready to practice law, without in-person July bar exams

Professor Robertson is the Steven W. Percy Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Environmental Studies at Cleveland State University.
