Altruism and the California Bar

The California state bar exam, one of the toughest in the country, is catching flak over its failure rate. The dean of Stanford University law school and the mayor of Los Angeles are just a few of the prominent people who've flunked the exam.

Bar exam officials deny that they are just trying to keep down the number of attorneys. They claim the exam is needed to protect the consumer.

Gee, if that is so, shouldn't they give the exam to every attorney in the state every three years and perhaps just give them two weeks to prepare?

After all, they should know the stuff, right?
