The results are in for the February 2007 bar exam. There will soon be 323 new Virginia-licensed attorneys, as reported by the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners.
A total of 596 candidates took the February exam, for a pass rate of 54 percent. This figure is consistent with years past.
Nearly 80 percent of the bar passers are Virginia residents, while 16 percent hailed from Maryland and D.C. Twelve additional states boasted successful candidates.
A complete run-down of new attorneys and their locations will appear in an upcoming edition of Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
Congratulations to all the new lawyers!
