More than 900 prospective lawyers took the July 2017 Ohio bar exam this week at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
A total of 997 recent law school graduates applied to take the exam, while 936 sat for the exam, according to the Ohio Supreme Court Office of Bar Admissions. Of the two annual bar exams administered by the Supreme Court, more attorney hopefuls take the July exam than the one in February.
The bar exam included 12 essay questions covering 11 topics, the Multistate Performance Test, and the Multistate Bar Examination.
Results from the exam will be announced by the Court at 7 a.m. on Oct. 27. Individuals who pass the exam and meet all other requirements for admission will be sworn in during two special sessions of the Court at the Ohio Theatre in Columbus at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 13.
In addition to its bar exam responsibilities, the Court 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.
