The complete results of the July 2019 bar exam were released Sept. 10 by the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners.
A total of 120 OU alumni took the exam. The overall passage rate for OU graduates was 92%, exceeding the statewide overall pass rate by 15%. For over 15 years, OU Law has consistently achieved the top overall passage rate on the July Oklahoma Bar Exam.
