All Florida Bar members will receive an email survey from the Florida Board of Bar Examiners today, September 22, asking for their input for a study on updating the bar exam.

The survey seeks input from Florida lawyers about their practice and expectations of newly licensed Florida lawyers.  A special committee of judges, law professors, and attorneys representing a variety of practice areas assisted in the development of the survey earlier this year, and the board pilot tested the survey over the summer.

The research will assist the Florida Supreme Court and the board as they consider what topics the bar exam should cover and methods for testing.  The Florida Bar has approved 1 hour of general CLE credit for completing the survey, which will be available until October 22.
