A compilation of the essay questions and two multistate performance test items from the July 2011 Ohio Bar Examination is now available.A compilation of the 12 essay questions and two multistate performance test (MPT) items from the July 2011 Ohio Bar Examination, along with actual applicant answers to each question, is now available, the Supreme Court of Ohio announced today.

Lee Ann Ward, director of the Supreme Court Office of Bar Admissions, stressed, “It’s important to remember that the published answers should not be considered model answers. They are not necessarily complete or correct in every aspect.”

“The published answers merely represent above-average performance by applicants who passed the July 2011 bar exam,” Ward said.

The Ohio Board of Bar Examiners is required by court rule to publish the essay questions from each exam.

The current publication and others from previous years are available online or by contacting the Office of Bar Admissions (614.387.9340 or baradmissions@sc.ohio.gov).

The MPT items included on the July 2011 exam were prepared by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Information about ordering copies of the MPT items and corresponding point sheets is available at www.ncbex.org.

The February bar exam will be administered February 28 through March 1.
