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?

    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?

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