The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) has established a Task Force to embark on a comprehensive, future-focused study to ensure that the bar examination continues to test the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for competent entry-level legal practice in the 21st century. The study will consider the content, format, delivery method, and timing of the bar examination and the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE). The goal of the Task Force’s study is to develop a set of recommendations for the NCBE Board of Trustees.

The National Conference of Bar Examiners is asking lawyers nationwide to take part in a practice analysis survey. You can participate in this important study of the legal profession by setting aside 20 minutes to answer the survey at

The survey is designed to collect information on the work that newly licensed lawyers perform; the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to competently perform that work; and the technology used in law practice. The results will provide a comprehensive picture of the core responsibilities of lawyers in their first three years of practice, and will be used by NCBE’s Testing Task Force as it considers what should be tested on the next generation of the bar exam. NCBE will publish a report of the survey results early next year. 


Don’t wait—answer the survey today and provide your perspective on the work of newly licensed lawyers in your state! Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email to other attorneys and encouraging them to participate, too.
