Bar exam on legal research?

From the Legal Writing Prof Blog:

research skills on the bar exam?

According to the May 2006 issue of The Bar Examiner, the National Conference of Bar Examiners is looking at the need for and feasibility of testing legal research skills and "is at the first stage in allowing the idea of such an evaluation to germinate . . . our inquiry is expected to last through the next year."

The article indicates that the NCBE folks are working with academic law librarians to investigate the possibilities.

Somebody must know something about this. Can anybody share?

See "AALL to Work with National Conference of Bar Examiners Regarding Bar Testing for Legal Research Skills" in the most recent (July 2006) AALL Spectrum (p. 3 of the center insert).
