The Uniform Bar Exam continues its march across the United States, with 33 jurisdictions now using or soon to adopt the standard test for attorney admissions.

The Supreme Courts of Illinois and Rhode Island this month formally adopted the uniform exam, and the Tennessee Supreme Court did so in April. Maryland and North Carolina each adopted the exam in November, and Texas could be next. A court-appointed task force in May recommended that the Lone Star state begin using the uniform exam while a similar committee in Ohio is expected to release its own recommendation next month.
