According to the Nation Conference of Bar Examiners, law students are "less able" then every before. An article in Bloomberg Business states that after the National Law exam testes were calculated in July, they were the lowest on record. They ask if Lawyers are actually dumber and the Bar Examiners answered a surprising yes! Oregon and Idaho were 2 of 6 states that dropped more then 9 points on the exam from the previous year.

They blame it on the lack of jobs for Lawyers, making less people interested in Law school. That causes schools to take less skilled or qualified students which has contributed for the lost in test scores.
