I guess if you work for big law, and you don’t pass the bar, you’re essentially fired. I don’t know too many people who work for big law who didn’t pass, but it has to be a death blow.
Needless to say, Brian passed the bar with flying colors, scoring 160 on the multi-state. They didn’t even grade his essay questions.
Of course, Mark and I knew he would pass with flying colors. But it does raise the interested question I posed earlier. Are bar results really a good indicator of performance as an attorney?
