The Ohio Supreme Court released the results of the February bar exam, which is commonly a less popular exam than the July bar exam. Of the Ohio schools, Case Western Reserve University School of Law had the highest overall passage rate of 64 percent. Two law schools tied for second place at 59 percent – Cleveland State University and University of Toledo. In third came the University of Akron School of Law at 56 percent.
When looking closer at the first-time bar taker rates, Cleveland-Marshall took the top spot with 82 percent passing. Toledo was close behind with 78 percent while Case Western took third with a strong 71 percent.
For the entire state, there were 374 Ohio law students that took the February bar exam. Of those students, just over half passed, or 52 percent, and 174 were first-time exam takers with 67 percent of them passing.
