Nearly 1,000 Seek to Take July Bar Exam

Just shy of 1,000 aspiring attorneys have applied to take the July 2017 Ohio Bar Examination, according to the Ohio Supreme Court.

The second bar exam of the year will be administered July 25-27 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Of the two annual bar exams, more attorney hopefuls take the exam in July than in February.

Of this year’s 997 July applicants, 878 Ohioans from 66 counties applied; with Franklin County leading the way with 224 applicants. As for out-of-state applicants, 119 have applied from 24 states and the District of Columbia.

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, counties, states, or countries 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.
