Test takers

As an African American lawyer, I am offended that law school deans are using “diversity” as the reason why the California Bar Exam’s cut score should be lowered. We all know that the racial disparity in passing rates has been around for a long time (and it even exists in states with lower cut scores). So, you will not solve the disparity in passing rates by lowering the cut score. A sincere interest in solving the racial disparity issue would involve a real analysis of the causes and potential solutions that can be implemented to eliminate the disparity. This would improve diversity in the bar nationwide.
