324 pass February bar exam

There are celebrations and groans across the state as February bar examination takers learn of the results. Overall, more than 57 percent of those who sat for the exam on Feb. 26 and 27 passed.

A total of 324 passed out of 564 total takers, according to W. Scott Street III, secretary-treasurer of the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners.  Of those, 206 had completed all requirements and were licensed, and 118 passed the exam but have not yet been licensed, most of whom are awaiting results from the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam, Street said.

The VBBE has the lists of names of those who passed.

Many of the new lawyers will be admitted to the Supreme Court of Virginia at a special session on June 3 in Richmond. The admission ceremony is arranged by the Young Lawyers Conference of the Virginia State Bar.

The pass rates for all applicants and for Virginia law schools, provided by the VBBE, are below. The University of Virginia takes top honors with a 90.48 percent overall pass rate. The rate is 100 percent for first-time Cavalier test takers.
