The bar exam is administered twice a year 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.
The July bar examination will be administered at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington on July 26-28, and April 1 is the deadline to apply to take the exam.
