40% Flunk Indiana Bar Exam this Year

40-percent of the people who took the Indiana bar exam this year flunked it.

The Indiana Supreme Court wants to know why.

Former Chief Justice Randall Shepard will lead a 14-member commission to study whether the content or the grading scale of the bar exam should be changed.

The panel will also look at whether Indiana should join the 32 states which administer the Uniform Bar Exam.

The current version includes six essay questions about Indiana law.

The panel will make its recommendations next December.
