The University of Minnesota Law School is still using one or more of their
IT staff to assist with the Minnesota Bar both in February and in July.

I was wondering if anyone else knew that Examsoft will not be using law
school IT as the site engineers for the Bar Examinations anymore.

With the growing need for Site Engineers throughout the country, which could
easily exceed 120 by July 2008, we concluded that it would be best to retain
the services of a temp agency that specializes in technology job placements.
This will not only help us keep bar examiner costs down (we are under
tremendous pressure to keep costs down) but it ensures a steady supply of
qualified computer experts who have been trained on issues that could arise
on exam day.  Each site will nevertheless have one Site Captain who is an
experienced ExamSoft software user at their academic institution.  The site
captain, I have been told, will still come from law school IT.

I know many of our students felt comfortable seeing a familiar face to help
them out before this difficult exam.

I have to admit lately it was nice to work the Bar exam, since the problems
were not there anymore, and it was fairly easy to support.  I understand
their decision to cut costs, as any business has to do this from time to
time.

Does anyone wonder whether a temp agency can support Examsoft as well as law
school IT technicians that support it year after year at their respective
schools?
