The Florida Board of Bar Examiners announces that it has begun a comprehensive analysis of the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are critical for newly-licensed Florida lawyers. The results of the study will assist the Board in its ongoing assessment of the Florida Bar Examination and inform any recommendations the Board may make to the Supreme Court of Florida about future format and content of the examination.
The board is seeking participants for a special panel that will consist of practicing attorneys, the judiciary, and law school faculty who have experience working with newly-licensed Florida attorneys. The panel will meet with the board and its experts in May or June of this year to identify the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are critical for newly-licensed Florida attorneys.
