Bar Exam Success

Our Graduates Find Success on the Bar Exam

The ultimate goal of every law student is to pass the bar exam on the first try. ONU Law is proud of its track record of both first-time  and overall pass success. The exam is given twice per year in July and February. The majority of graduates take the exam in July.

ONU Law has extensive bar prep programs in place to prepare students to pass the bar exam. We were the first law school in the country to integrate a bar prep course for academic credit into its third year curriculum. The course is offered both for students taking the Ohio Bar Exam and those taking the bar exam outside of Ohio. In this course, students are tested on questions previously given on bar exams.

In addition to this course in the spring semester, the faculty present weekly workshops to assist students in bar preparation. Difficult material on bar subjects is reviewed and practice essay and multiple-choice questions are presented.
