College of Law Bar Exam Results Are Strong
The results for the University of Cincinnati College of Law students who took the July 2009 Ohio Bar Exam are in and the College of Law has a strong showing. UC led the state for overall test takers. While the passage rate for all takers was 81.3 percent, the College of Law’s passage rate was higher at 89 percent.
The passage rate for the College of Law’s first-time test takers was 91 percent, compared to an 87.8 percent passage rate for all first-time test takers in Ohio. This score puts the law school third among Ohio law schools.
Ohio is among the top three jurisdictions in which our graduates practice. The 2009 class fared equally well among New York and Illinois.
Applicants who have successfully passed the examination and who have satisfied all of the Supreme Court’s other requirements for admission will be sworn in on November 9 at 10:30 a.m. during a special session of the Supreme Court at the historic Ohio Theatre. The session will be streamed live via the Supreme Court and Ohio Channel websites at www.supremecourt.ohio.gov and www.ohiochannel.org and available statewide on the Ohio Channel’s local public broadcasting stations.
