Bar Exam Results Are Strong
The results for UC Law students who took the July 2010 Ohio Bar Exam are in and the College of Law, once again, had a strong showing. UC ranked second in the state for overall test takers. While the passage rate for all takers was 82.8 percent, the College of Law’s passage rate was higher at 90 percent.
The passage rate for the College of Law’s first-time test takers was 91 percent, comparable to last year. This can also be compared to an 87.8 percent passage rate for all first-time test takers in Ohio.
The excellence of UC Law students was exemplified by alumnus Pat Brown ’10. Having taken the bar exam in July, he recently notified the school that he scored in the overall 100th percentile on the examination, scoring in the 99th percentile on the MBE and in the 99th percentile on the essay component.
Applicants who successfully passed the examination and who satisfied all of the Supreme Court’s other requirements for admission were sworn in on November 8 at 10:30 a.m. during a special session of the Supreme Court at the historic Ohio Theatre. The session can be viewed via the Supreme Court and Ohio Channel websites at www.supremecourt.ohio.gov and www.ohiochannel.org. You can also see photos of the event here.
