The Bar Examiners reported the July, 2016 bar results today. 43% passed. 7,737 applicants took the bar exam. 3,322 passed. These are the lowest July results since 1988. Even ABA first-time takers showed a decreased pass rate. Only 62% passed. Thus, when choosing a bar review, carefully consider the services provided, and how many exam application and writing opportunities are offered in the course. Learning the law is only the first step. Step two, developing exam skills, is what it takes to pass. Fleming’s bar review provides the most essay, Performance, and MBE skill training than its competitors. Fleming's attorneys orally critique every submitted exam on CD or Drop-box.
