Abstract

Professor Barkan argues that legal research should be included on the bar exam. Doing so would measure aspects of legal education and lawyer com-petency that are not otherwise assessed and would create incentives for law schools to pay more attention to legal research. Ultimately, it would lead to better legal research.
