Passing the Bar Exam

Candidates Who Passed
The July 2007 NYS Bar Exam

November 16, 2007
New York Lawyer

The New York State Board of Law Examiners announced today that the passing rate for graduates of New York's 15 law schools taking the bar examination for the first time in July 2007 was 88.2%. This is the highest passing rate in memory for graduates of New York law schools and represents a 1.5% increase over the passing rate for the same group who took the July 2006 bar examination.

Not only did this group achieve a historically high passing rate, they also surpassed the passing rate of their counterparts from American Bar Association-approved law schools outside of New York. The passing rate for graduates of such law schools who took the bar examination for the first time in New York this July was 85.7%.

The Board examined a record 10,907 candidates during two days of testing conducted on July 24-25, 2007. The passing rate for all candidates, including U.S. domestic-educated and foreign-educated candidates, first time and repeat takers, was 70.6%. Foreign-educated candidates accounted for 24% of the total group and those foreign candidates taking the New York bar examination for the first time had a passage rate of 45.6%.

Passing rates for all groups of candidates taking the July 2007 bar examination generally increased over the passing rates for July 2006, with the passing rate for graduates of New York law schools, including first-time and repeat takers, showing the largest increase. The passing rate for that group increased to 82.0%, from 78.5% one year ago.
