It has been a month since the infamous Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) ethics exam, which featured several questions that were “virtually verbatim” to those in this 2011 past paper.
For our report of the story (March 20), the Bar Standards Board (BSB) provided this statement: “We are aware of this very serious issue and are conducting a thorough investigation. It would be inappropriate to comment further until we have completed that process.”
Since then, there has been an eerie silence…
When we contacted the BSB yesterday, a spokesperson said: “The investigation is ongoing. We have no further comment.” The BSB was unable to confirm a likely completion date for the investigation.
