Thank you for contributing to the legal profession by taking a few minutes to answer the practice analysis survey. Results will help to guide the Task Force as it tackles the content and design of the future bar examination, and will also inform law schools, employers, and the public of the expectations and responsibilities of newly licensed lawyers.
