Prof. Carol Chomsky Co-authors Article on Racial Disparities in Bar Exam Results for Bloomberg Law
Bloomberg Law recently published an Insight article by Professor Carol Chomsky and three co-authors from the Collaboratory on Legal Education, titled “Racial Disparities in Bar Exam Results—Causes and Remedies." The authors write, "Stark racial disparities mark the legal profession’s licensing process. . . This might be defensible if a high-stakes, speeded exam based on extensive memorization were necessary to protect the public. But it’s not."
