Crain's Cleveland Business: UC Law outperforms state average for summer, fall bar passage rates

University of Cincinnati College of Law graduates who took the summer and fall bar exam in Ohio outperformed the state average, reports Crain’s Cleveland Business.

The passage rate in Ohio for the October 2020 exam, which had the highest passage rate since July 2013, according to the Ohio Supreme Court, which posted the results, was 77.4 percent, or 741 of the 958 applicants who took the exam.

The bar exam is traditionally offered in February and July, with the summer exam usually the more popular option among test-takers. The National Conference for Bar Examiners offered the remote bar exam in October for the first time as an alternative due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

UC Law boasted a passage rate of 80 percent for both the summer and fall bar exams, placing it as the third highest performing law school among Ohio’s nine law schools.
