The National Law Journal: A recent paper in the Journal of Legal Education investigates the consequences for law school graduates that fail the bar exam on their first attempt.  “during the first five to 10 years out of law school, those who don’t pass the bar lag far behind their peers who do in areas such as earnings, job stability and marriage and divorce rates. Non-bar passers close that gap somewhat in the latter half of their careers, though they never fully catch up with most of their classmates who passed the bar . . . . ‘Law schools owe it to their most at-risk prospective students to provide candid information about the probability and costs of failing the bar examination’,”
