Abstract

This Article argues that there is a need for many law schools to examine their admission processes and make changes designed to ensure that the qualities considered most closely by bar admission authorities are highly valued in law school admission decisions. At the same time, law schools should tailor their student behavior codes and related enforcement mechanisms to better prepare students to practice professionally upon admission to the bar.

Keywords: Law School, Admission, Bar Admission
