What factors cause J.D.s to fail the bar exam? (Not counting the fact that "it's hard".)


Why is there such a high initial failure rate on the (lawyers' legal) bar exams in most states of the USA? What can a person do to increase their chances of passing on the first try?

    Interesting!! Would more training materials in taking this kind of multiple choice test help, do you think?

    I'm confused. I thought that in order to practice law in the USA a person was required to pass the bar exam before they could be sworn in as a lawyer. A J. D. would have such high student loans they pretty much have to be a lawyer to pay them. No?
