ONU Law graduates record 87 percent success rate on July 2017 bar exam

Ohio Northern University’s law graduates continued their outstanding performance on the Ohio bar exam. In results released Friday, October 27, 2017 by the Ohio Supreme Court, the Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law tied with The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law for second among Ohio’s nine law schools for first-time bar passage rate on the July bar exam with an 87 percent pass rate. The state-wide pass rate for all first-time takers was 77 percent.  Case Western Reserve University is first.

“These results reflect the hard work and dedication of our students and the commitment of our faculty to our students’ success. Our recent graduate outcomes are further evidence of the college’s investment in preparing students for successful careers,” ONU College of Law Dean David Crago said.

ONU’s College of Law offers an exceptional value. ONU’s students have the lowest total debt load upon graduation among private law schools in the nation according to “Law School Transparency.” Faculty members have earned degrees from Cornell, Columbia, Duke, Harvard, Michigan, the University of California and Yale among other distinguished universities and colleges.

The ONU College of Law ranked first in Ohio for first-time passage rate following the February 2017 exam.
