The purpose of examination must surely be to strive for excellence.
The minimum requirement must be to show competence across a spectrum of law exams starting with a law degree or similar. The Law Society finals that followed for me were challenging. I still retain my papers from the early 70's and I suspect they would challenge modern students especially without the background of a related degree course.
We live in an age of specialism but this has had the basis of a proper foundation.
Is this all an attempt to dumb down the status of academic training for lawyers?
What of the medical profession? Would we countenance doctors being trained with 'tick-box' examinations or by removing the need for a medical degree as a fundamental starting point?
