That’s a 4 percent increase from last year, the New York Law Journal (sub. req.) reports. Also, first-time test takers who were graduates of ABA-accredited law schools had a pass rate of 86 percent, which is the group’s highest pass rate since 2013, according to a New York State Board of Law Examiners’ press release (PDF).

Also, there was a decrease this year in first-time test takers from ABA-accredited schools. There were 5,740 of those individuals sitting for the July 2017 exam, which is 488 less than who took the test last year. A list of candidates who passed the exam can be found here.
