The Virginia Board of Bar Examiners has posted the results for the July 2008 Bar Exam this afternoon.
Of the candidates who sat for the exam this past summer in Roanoke, 1163 (or 79.9 percent) received a passing score. About 100 of those applicants still have outstanding requirements for admission to the Virginia State Bar.
Bar passers will be sworn in during a ceremony held Oct. 27 at the Richmond Convention Center. The names of the newest Virginia-licensed attorneys will also appear in an upcoming issue of Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
The next Virginia Bar Examination will be held Feb. 24 and 25, 2009 in Norfolk.
Congratulations to new Virginia lawyers!
