Iowa May Cut Bar Exam For Some Law Students

Iowa May Cut Bar Exam For Some Law Students
DES MOINES, IA -

Iowa may allow graduates of the state's two law schools to start practicing law in the state without taking the bar exam.

The Iowa State Bar Association is considering the idea to help young lawyers get started quickly without accumulating more debt.

Typically, graduates of the University of Iowa and Drake University's law schools must wait 4½ months after graduation before learning whether they passed the bar exam. During that time, many student take out more loans for living expenses.

Drake law school dean Allan Vestal says that time is a waste for most students.

The proposal would still require graduated to pass an ethics exam and background check. Graduates would also have to take a class on Iowa laws and court procedure.
