Episode 74: New Pathways - Alternatives to the Licensure Exam

CLEAR Podcast,

Jo Perini-Abbott and Addie Smith with the Oregon State Bar Alternatives to the Exam Task Force talk about the OSB's deliberative process to research alternatives to the traditional bar exam, including diploma privilege, an experiential law school pathway, and a supervised practice pathway. Hear about the requirements for the ultimately approved Supervised Practice Portfolio Examination (SPPE), its skill-focused method of assessment, and the potential impact on law schools and students. Jo and Addie also share how this new pathway will support diversity and equity in the legal profession.
