July 14, 2017 | By Kylie Larkin — Professor Robert Anderson was quoted in the New York Times article, “California Supreme Court Moves to Make Bar Exam Easier to Pass.”  The article considers the decision of the California Supreme Court to change the passing score of the California Bar Exam. California’s passing score threshold of 144 is higher than any other state but Delaware.

Via the New York Times:

“The cut score is almost everything,” said Robert Anderson, a professor of corporate law at Pepperdine School of Law in California, who did a study of the 10 most difficult state exams in 2013. That study concluded that “California’s is probably the most difficult” in the country.

“If California changed its minimum score to 133, which is the same as New York’s, then I would say, California’s is easy,” he added.
