The Ohio Supreme Court today released results from the February 2016 Ohio Bar Examination. Of the 421 aspiring lawyers who sat for the exam, 57.2 percent (241) passed; out of 209 first-time test takers, 70 percent received passing scores.

The exam was administered at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on Feb. 23-25.

The successful applicants who meet all other admission requirements will be sworn in during a special session of the Supreme Court on Monday, May 2 at 2 p.m. in the Palace Theatre in Columbus.

The bar exam is administered twice a year by the Court, which regulates the practice of law in Ohio, including the admission of new attorneys, the biennial registration of current attorneys, attorney discipline in cases of misconduct, and the administration of continuing legal education.

The July bar examination will be administered at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington on July 26-28.
