493 Pass July Bar Exam

More than 700 test takers took the July bar exam and 493 or around 70% passed. Lawyers who passed the exam are eligible to join the bar after paying applicable license fees and registering for and attending a mandatory admission ceremony Oct. 31. 


University of Colorado School of Law first-time examinees passed the bar at a rate of 83%, while only 20% of repeat test takers from the school passed the in-person exam. University of Colorado School of Law test takers also had the highest average score on the exam, closely followed by the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, with a difference of just two points. 

Other ABA test takers followed with a six-point delta and non-ABA or foreign-educated test takers scored an average of 39 points lower than University of Colorado School of Law test takers. For first-time test takers from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, 76% passed, and of repeat examinees, 39% passed. 

There were 38 examinees who took the bar this summer from national schools like Columbia, Harvard and Yale, at a 95% pass rate, significantly outstripping both the overall number of test takers from out-of-state schools and the pass rate from February. The state bar exam saw 316 test takers categorized as “other,” and of those, 60% passed. 

Three test takers didn’t show for the July exam and 47 withdrew from the test.

Congratulations to all the new attorneys who passed the July bar.
