Massachusetts Bar Exam Results

Massachusetts posts the names of all who passed the written portion of the bar exam and provides the statistics of the Massachusetts law schools.

Before reporting to the Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on the character, acquirements and qualifications of the petitioners, the Board of Bar Examiners must give public notice of those persons that have passed the law examination held on July 30th and 31st, 2019.  If no objection is made, they may be recommended to the Supreme Judicial Court for admission.
