Abstract

As more and more states transition to the Uniform Bar Exam as their state licensing exam, law schools throughout the country continue to examine ways to improve the academic and professional success of their students. This article discusses some of the curricular changes that the University of North Carolina School of Law has implemented to promote the academic and professional success of its students. These curricular changes have given students opportunities to practice and enhance their legal writing, analytical, and test-taking skills, and they have produced positive bar exam results for the law school and a positive experience for the students.
