Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

July 2013 bar exam results were published today, and 416 of 557 people sitting for the test passed, according to statistics posted by the Indiana Board of Law Examiners.

The 416 people who passed the exam represents a virtual carbon copy of the success rate of those who took the exam in July 2012. In both July exam years, 75 percent of all test-takers passed. Fifteen more people took the bar exam in July 2012 than did this year.

Of the 557 people who took the bar this July, 484 were first-time bar takers with an overall pass rate of 81 percent, down a percentage point from July 2012. This year, 73 people were repeat takers, a greater number than in 2012, but the pass rate for them remained the same as last year, 27 percent.

While the total number taking the bar in July decreased slightly from last year, the 557 people taking the July exam is the fourth-highest number in the past 10 years, according to statistics from the Board of Law Examiners.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
