Bar exam test takers can now see whether they passed the February 2020 test.

The Ohio Supreme Court today released results from the February 2020 Ohio Bar Examination. Of the 252 aspiring lawyers who sat for the exam, 124 – or 49.2 percent – passed the exam.

Among the 81 first-time test takers, 74 percent received passing scores.

The exam was administered at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington from Feb. 25 to 27.

The successful applicants who meet all other admission requirements will be sworn in during a special session of the Supreme Court on Monday, May 11 at 1 p.m. using remote technology.

The bar exam is administered 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.
