Statistics (Survey)

US Legal Bar Exam statistics dating back to February 2012, based on figures quoted by state bar associations.

Please be aware that the NCBE does not files its annual report with the final figures until the following year (e.g., 2022 statistics are formally announced in spring 2023). Consequently, the present year statistics listed below are either from the initial bar passage announcement or from me personally calculating “pass” v. “fail” numbers from their PDF announcements. These statistics are not intended for you to rely upon; they are purely provided here for general discourse.

Some states adapt their scores after initial publication in the annual NCBE report. Where this occurs, I try to note both reported scores with the final result listed as “Corrected.”
