Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners and teachers have long bemoaned the absence of topics such as negotiation, mediation, and client counseling on the multistate bar exam. Now, the inclusion of these topics on the “NextGen” bar exam may stimulate their instruction in the law school core curriculum. Will it? If so, how? And would that be a good thing?
