Responding to anecdotal evidence that new lawyers don’t understand the rules for practicing in New York courts, the state bar association is announcing Monday that it’s creating a task force to study whether the adoption of the Uniform Bar Exam is responsible.

Presiding Justice Alan Scheinkman of the Appellate Division, Second Department, and Eileen Millett, former co-chair of NYSBA’s committee on legal education and admission to the bar, will chair the study group.
