Washington Supreme Court Decides: Bar Exam Ruled Racist

Published on

According to the left, everyone is racist.

Washington Supreme Court issued two decisions on Monday that endorses “alternative paths” for those who wish to pursue a career in law, removing the requirement to pass the bar exam. The court argued that the traditional bar examination “blocks marginalized groups from entering the practice of law.” It even went as far as to say the bar exam has “racism or classism written in it.”

The Post-Millennial:

The Bar Licensure Task Force was chaired by Washington Supreme Court Judge Raquel Montoya Lewis and Seattle University Law School Dean Anthony Varona. They studied alternatives to the traditional bar examination following a pandemic-related year of bar exam modifications.

The Task Force concluded that traditional bar exams “disproportionately and unnecessarily block marginalized groups from practicing law and are at best minimally efficient in ensuring competent attorneys.”

The task force also claimed in its portion of the filing that “In the 1960s while the Civil Rights Movement phased out formal racist, a veiled or nonformal form of racism entered the scene–racism disguised as excellence, fairness, and equal opportunity–all the things which make up the constellations of attitudes, standards, and values we call merit.” For the bar exam.

In a written statement, Justice Montoya Lewis said, “We recognize that these alternative paths are several ways to guarantee a competent and licensed body of new lawyers who are sorely needed throughout the state.”

Oregon is the only state that’s approved alternatives to the bar examination for law licensing. California is sure to follow suit. The court ruled that there are three different paths for legal licensing.

Students of law could become practice-ready after completing 12 skills credits, and 500 hours as licensed legal interns. Law clerks enrolled in programs other than law school would be required to complete additional benchmarks and educational materials under the guidance of tutors. These requirements are similar to those for law school graduates who have completed an apprenticeship. They also require 500 hours of legal internship to qualify for a bar exam exemption.

The minimum passing score of the bar examination must be reduced from 266 to 270.

I don’t know if the bar exam is a good way to get a law license, but I am sick and tired of the wokeness that labels everything as racist. In the past week, medical devices and marriage have been deemed racist. The Biden administration claimed last year that roads were racist. You probably also remember that math can be racist. And economic recessions are also racist. If you refused to wear a face mask during the pandemic you were racist.

For the woke left it does not matter that they accuse everything of racism. These accusations are not meant to promote equality, equity, or anything else. Their agenda is purely political. It’s because they are racist that Democrats insist on calling election integrity measures like voter ID or signature requirements racist.

You’re probably eager to learn what tomorrow’s “racist” event will be.
