Learning about the various platforms in blogging and content management system (CMS) is always interesting, which is the primary reason why we constantly try out various platforms and softwares. The same curiousity led us to experiment on forum platforms, particularly phpBB.
So, allow me to announce the creation of the Bar Exams forum. This forum should allow a more lively interaction among readers who are reviewing for the bar exams (law students and non-reviewees, of course, are also welcome). The forum (click here) is far from perfect, but this is the essence of experimentation.
Topic: There are at least two views relating to a law school’s level of focus, or let’s say preoccupation, on the bar exams.
Some say that preparing law students for the bar exams is a priority because all the hard work is useless unless they pass the bar exams. Besides, a poor performance of the examinees reflects poorly on the law school.
Others say that a law school should focus on training law students for practice. Law students should be left by themselves in preparing for the bar exams. If they don’t make it, it simply means they’re not cut out to be a lawyer.
What do you think? Discuss here or at the Bar Exams forum.
