If a lawyer who has been in practice for a number of years wishes to relocate in another state, he can be admitted to that state's bar on motion. But the young lawyer, who is unlikely to be certain of where he wishes to locate or what type of law he wishes to practice, cannot relocate in a different state without facing another bar examination. Are state bar examinations, with their myriad variations in preparation, grading, subject coverage, quality and objectives, really necessary, or would a national examination be more fair to both the profession and the public?
