  • Everyone guessing wrong.

    Everyone here guessing at the etymology of bar, as used as it relates to practice of law, is guessing wrongly.

  • No, the understanding of what Bar means when referring to the legal profession can be ambiguous.

    Bar, in a legal sense, can be confusing and very ambiguous to anyone who has no knowledge of the practice of law.

However the exact reason why it is called the Bar exam would not be entirely understood.
