Ohio State Bar Exam

The February 2013 bar exam is just around the corner (Feb. 26-28), but there is no reason to panic. If you've studied and practiced, you'll be fine. It may be the worst thing you'll ever have to do, but you'll survive. People do it all the time.

One word of caution, however: the bar examiners take the time limits very seriously. Here in Ohio, the Supreme Court recently denied admission to a test-taker who continued writing for 30-60 seconds after time was called on several questions. The good news for those of you sitting for the exam shortly is that this is an easily avoidable mistake. Trust that you prepared appropriately, and you should do just fine.

For those of you already contemplating the July exam, we have a research guide on the subject. The guide includes helpful books and strategies, practice tools for the multi-state portion, and links to past essay exams from the Ohio State Bar.

Good luck!
