Graduates of The University of Toledo College of Law passed the Ohio bar exam this summer at the second-highest rate among state law schools, according to results for first-time takers released Oct. 31.
UT’s pass rate for the July bar exam was 86.4 percent, as 51 of its 59 first-time bar exam takers were successful. The overall pass rate for first-time takers was 81 percent.
More than 1,000 applicants took the bar exam for the first time in July. Ohio State graduates had the highest pass rate of the nine law schools in the state.
“We are proud of our graduates’ performance, but not surprised,” said Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the UT College of Law. “Our curriculum thoroughly prepares our students for the bar exam, and our faculty’s teaching ability is second to none.”
Steinbock noted that these outstanding results also came while UT law students are paying the lowest tuition rate of any law school in Ohio and Michigan.
Successful applicants will be sworn in as members of the Ohio bar Monday, Nov. 17.
