Croucher, Escontrias, Hudnell & Saadati-Soto on Diploma Privilege

Season 1, Ep. 588

In this episode, Emily Croucher (@emilydotgov), Pilar Escontrias (@XicanaRebelde), Efrain Hudnell (@EfrainJoshua1), and Donna Saadati-Soto (@SaadatiSoto), discuss their involvement with United for Diploma Privilege and its successes to date. They explain why diploma privilege is critical to safety and fairness, as we face the Covid-19 pandemic. They reflect on the response from different state bar examiners and state supreme courts, with many refusing to even acknowledge a problem. And they argue that we should abolish the bar exam entirely, in favor of a system of lawyer licensing that meaningfully reflects competence to practice.
