ABA JOURNAL — In-depth questions aimed at allowing candidates to demonstrate knowledge and skill of attorney functions, in addition to multiple-choice questions and essays, are expected to be part of the NextGen bar exam, according to a May 24 news release from the National Conference of Bar Examiners. If jurisdictions want to continue using the current version of the test instead of the NextGen bar exam, they can, says Judith Gundersen, president and CEO of the NCBE.
