C|M|LAW Tops Bar Exam
CSU’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law had the highest passage rate for first-time takers of the July Ohio Bar Exam. The school’s 93 percent passage rate was well above the state average of 79 percent.
This is the second consecutive Ohio Bar Exam in which C|M|LAW had the top passage rate, following its 82 percent pass rate for the February 2018 exam.
Following C|M|LAW, the first-time pass rates for all Ohio law schools are: Ohio State, 88 percent; University of Toledo, 84 percent; Case Western Reserve, 81 percent; University of Cincinnati, 79 percent; Capital University, 71 percent; Ohio Northern, 71 percent; University of Dayton, 70 percent and University of Akron, 65 percent.
C|M|LAW offers students several complimentary programs to help them prepare for the Ohio Bar Exam. The College assigns a faculty mentor for each bar-taker, who communicates with the student throughout their final two years of law school to ensure they are planning and preparing for the exam. The mentor then serves as a sounding board during the final weeks of bar preparation. Faculty experts also review bar exam topics for their graduates who are preparing for the exam and the College provides a commercial bar exam preparation course to students at no cost beyond their tuition.
