Committee: Make Lawyers' Test Easier


The Knesset Constitutional Committee on Sunday recommended that the the Justice Ministry, which licenses lawyers, lower the score needed to pass the bar and receive the title of attorney. The committee asked Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman to reduce the passing score from 65 to 60.

The committee pointed out that the percentage of attorneys failing the test this past year was higher than average, with many of those who failed claiming that the test was “unfair.”
