Adapting to Change: Kansas Attorney Admissions and the NextGen Bar Exam

Monthly Membership Luncheon

September 6, 2024

Noon- 1:00PM

The process for admitting attorneys into the practice of law in Kansas has recently changed and will undergo even more changes in the near future.  At a time where we are facing attorney deserts across the state of Kansas, it is crucial that attorneys understand these shifting dynamics and adapt accordingly.  Join us for an engaging session where we explore recent changes to Kansas Supreme Court Rules Relating to the Admission of Attorneys, the NextGen Bar Examination and plans for the implementation of the examination in Kansas, and the how all of this relates to the Kansas Supreme Court’s Rural Justice Initiative.
