For what its worth, it is my opinion that Arizona's failure to grant reciprocity for passing the bar in other states is purely a protectionist policy trying to reduce competition in our legal field. Obviously, some standards are needed, but absent reason why state B's examination is not sufficient, reciprocity seems a good free-market idea. It would make it easier to move around this country, too.
