Law School Exams
CrimProf Blog brings up an article discussing some of the flaws with law school exams. I think the article overstates its case, and many of the criticisms it extends to law school exams would apply to examinations in any field of study, but the greater point, in my opinion, holds. Although I could joke about the assertion that time pressure in exams not being relevant to legal practice, given how many lawyers seem to wait until the last minute to brief even complex legal issues.
