Arizona's Early Bar Exam Sitting Attracts 38 Hopefuls

, The National Law Journal

    I am a 1986 Graduate of Valparaiso Law School (Indiana). Back then, though not now, Indiana was a non-multistate jurisdiction, meaning we had a 25 essay question exam on a wide variety of topics, including questions on subjects as diverse as taxation and administrative law, and much more. Having taken three other bar exams, I found Indiana‘s Bar harder due to its broad scope. I believe Iowa was the only other non-multistate jurisdiction at the time. But, on subject, Indiana allowed a law student to take the Bar Exam after two years of study. Few did so, as far as I could tell, but I knew two persons who did, one passed, one did not. As it uses the multistate exam now, I doubt they continue to offer that two year option.
