337 pass July bar as pass rate holds steady

September 14, 2017

There are 337 new lawyers in the state today after results of the July Indiana Bar Exam were announced.

Overall, the pass rate among test-takers held steady compared with the July 2016 exam. A total of 64 percent who sat for the bar exam in both years passed. Since 2010, the July exam’s overall pass rate has declined from a peak of 78 percent in 2010 and 2011.

Success among first-time test takers was slightly higher this year compared to the July 2016 exam. A total of 73 percent of first-time test takers passed, 1 percentage point gain over those who sat for the exam last year. Those fortunes were reversed for repeat takers — just 29 percent passed compared with 30 percent in July 2016.
