Iowa Law Students May Escape the Dreaded Bar Exam

Iowa Law Students May Escape the Dreaded Bar Exam

Summary: The Iowa Supreme Court will decide whether graduates of Drake University Law School and the University of Iowa College of Law will be required to take the state’s bar exam to practice law.

Graduates of Drake University Law School and the University of Iowa College of Law may be in luck. According to RadioIowa.com, the Iowa Supreme Court held a public hearing at 9:00 this morning on changes that would make it easier for alumni of the two schools to practice law in Iowa.

Steve Davis, court communications officer, stated that a Blue Ribbon Committee from the Iowa State Bar Association recommended the change. “Currently, after they graduate from Drake University Law School and the University of Iowa College of Law, they are required to successfully complete the Iowa bar examination. Under this recommendation, they would no longer have to do that,” he explained.

The testimony of 24 people was to be presented this morning, including law school deans, district court judges, and the Iowa Attorney General. All were expected to comment on the change.

Prior to the hearing, the court received written comments on the proposed change. “There’s actually 152 written comments made, so the court’s going to have a lot of information to make the decision,” Davis added. A decision will be made by the justices after the hearing. Though they will meet and discuss the new practice rule, there’s no strict deadline to have a decision finalized. The comments and the proposal are both posted at www.iowacourts.gov.
