501 applicants seek to take February bar exam

Published: January 28, 2013

A total of 501 applicants have applied to take the February 2013 Ohio Bar Examination, the Ohio Supreme Court announced Wednesday.

The exam will be administered Feb. 26 through 28 in Columbus. Nov. 1, 2012 was the deadline for filing applications to take the first bar exam this year. Of the two annual bar exams, fewer attorney hopefuls take the February exam than the exam in July.

Of the applicants, 435 Ohioans from 49 counties applied to take the exam with Cuyahoga County leading the way with 102 applicants. Sixty-six out-of-state applicants from 20 states and the District of Columbia applied to take the exam.

The bar exam is administered by the Supreme Court, which 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.

Twice a year, the Supreme Court publishes in the Ohio Official Reports Advance Sheets and online a list of the names, cities, and counties or states of residence of those persons who have applied for admission to the practice of law in Ohio. The Supreme Court also distributes copies of the list to all regional and local bar association admissions committees.
