Is the UBE easier than other Bar Exams?

Whoever bears the responsibility, the facts are clear — each year fewer and fewer lawyer hopefuls are passing the state bar exams. With the bar exam a prerequisite for entry into the legal profession, the consequences are obvious . . . the United States is watching the slow but significant decline in new entrants into the profession.
