1,245 Seek to Take July Bar Exam

More than 1,200 aspiring attorneys have applied to take the July Ohio Bar Examination, the Ohio Supreme Court announced today.

The July 2014 Ohio Bar Exam will be administered July 29-31 for first time at the Greater Columbus Convention Center after years of taking place at Veterans Memorial. April 1 was the deadline for filing applications to take the second bar exam in 2014. Of the two annual bar exams, more attorney hopefuls take the July exam than the exam in February.

Of this year’s July applicants, 1,079 Ohioans from 62 counties applied to take the exam with Franklin County leading the way with 283 applicants. As for out-of-state applicants, 166 have applied to take the exam from 26 different states, the District of Columbia, and Thailand.

The bar exam is administered by the Supreme 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.

By rule, the Supreme Court publishes twice a year a list of the names, cities, and counties or states of residence of those persons who have applied for admission to the practice of law in Ohio in the Ohio Official Reports Advance Sheets and online. The Supreme Court also distributes copies of the list to all regional and local bar association admissions committees.
