The New York State Board of Law Examiners has completed grading the papers written by applicants for admission to the Bar at the examination held on February 21-22, 2006. The Board examined 3,565 candidates for the February 2006 bar examination, the most that it has ever examined for a February administration of the bar examination. Of the 3,565 candidates examined, 1,635 passed the examination for an overall pass rate of 46%. Of the 1,302 applicants taking the examination for the first time, 793 passed for an overall first time pass rate of 61%.

February candidates included 2,281 candidates who were graduates of an ABA approved law school; 1,244 of them passed for a pass rate of 54.5%. Among the ABA graduates, 839 were taking the examination for the first time; 620 of them passed for a first time pass rate of 74% for ABA graduates.

Of the 1,635 candidates who passed the examination, 1,301 were certified for admission to the Appellate Division. The applicants who were certified for admission must appear before the Committee on Character and Fitness appointed by the Appellate Division in each Judicial District of the State to be examined as to his or her character and fitness. The remaining 334 candidates who were successful on the bar examination will be certified for admission upon receipt by the Board of proof that they have successfully completed the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination as required by the Rules of the New York State Court of Appeals for the Admission of Attorneys and Counselors at Law.
