This article from our friends at Kegler, Brown, Hill + Ritter addresses the record low pass rate for Ohio’s Bar exam. Is it a policy to make it tougher to be admitted in Ohio or a less-prepared crop of students? The fact that the trend from 2009 to 2013 was consistent would militate against the former and in favor of the latter. It may also be an outlier.
In any event, we need attorneys well prepared for the rigors of the profession.
