Nearly Half Of The People Who Took The Michigan Bar Exam Completely Bombed

The unofficial results are in from the Michigan Bar Exam and the results are pretty depressing, to say the least.

Above The Law received the total pass-fail numbers as well as breakdowns by law school from a tipster. Let’s just say, Michigan might be seeing a decline in its number of lawyers if things don’t pick up.

Of the 967 legal hopefuls who took the test, only 529 passed. Put another way, 45 per cent of test takers failed.

The national bar passage rate in 2011 was 69 per cent — significantly higher than Michigan. Ouch.
