TESTING TASK FORCE 
2019 PRACTICE ANALYSIS SURVEY
Closing September 30, 2019
We reached out to you recently with the opportunity to participate in NCBE’s practice analysis survey designed to collect information on the work activities of newly licensed lawyers. 
The survey will close on September 30.  If you haven’t completed the survey, please take a few moments out of your busy schedule to do so now.  If you already completed the survey, thank you for your contribution!   CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE SURVEY
The survey results will provide a comprehensive picture of the core responsibilities of lawyers in their early years of practice and guide NCBE’s Testing Task Force in determining what should be tested on the next generation of the bar exam. Results will be published at the beginning of 2020.  
If you have any questions about the survey or the Task Force study, please contact NCBE at CLICK HERE FOR LINK
Thank you!
Let’s make sure the survey includes the voices of attorneys from our State!
