Passing the Bar Exam

Candidates Who Passed
The February 2002 NYS Bar Exam

May 10, 2002
New York Lawyer

Only 42.2 percent of candidates who took the February 2002 New York State Bar Examination passed the test -- the lowest pass rate in at least 11 years. The pass rate has dropped each of the last three years.

Of the 3,167 candidates who took the test, only 1,338 passed. The highest pass rate on the February test session in the last 11 years was 1996's 55.8 percent.

As is typical, the pass rate for first-time takers this year -- 57.6 percent -- was substantially higher than that of all candidates. But the first-time pass rate was also the lowest it has been in the last 11 years. Of the 1,350 first-timers, just 777 passed this year.

Candidates who passed and are certified for admission are listed below under the Appellate Division in which they have applied for admission. The 276 candidates who passed the exam but are not certified for admission, because the Board of Law Examiners has not yet received proof they passed the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination, are listed separately.
