July 2016 Michigan Bar Exam Results are Released! July 2016 Michigan bar exam results are out! They have been posted by seat number on the Michigan Board of Law Examiner’s website online.
In the past, all of the numbers of those who passed the exam were posted (this includes those who have not passed the MPRE or have not received a character and fitness clearance). It appears as though the Michigan Board of Law Examiner’s has again released results of everyone who has passed the bar exam.
July 2016 Michigan bar exam results have been mailed and applicants should expect to receive them in a few days. We always recommend that you wait until you receive official results before publicly announcing whether you passed or failed! So far as we know, Michigan has always accurately posted seat numbers, but it is wiser to wait since posting by seat number is relatively new! (This is only their sixth time posting by seat number!)
We will be updating this post with more information including an overview of what the approximate percentage is of those who are listed versus those who took the exam.
July 2016 Michigan Bar Exam Results – If Your Number is on the List – Congrats!
If you passed the July 2016 Michigan bar examination, congratulations! Please check out this Congratulatory Note to those who Pass the Bar Exam, as well as a description of Michigan swearing-in ceremonies if you are in Michigan. Those in Michigan (and many states) will have to attend a swearing-in ceremony in order to get your P number and practice law. To our knowledge, there is NO other good, detailed information online about what a swearing-in ceremony actually is, so it may be worth it to check out the above post.
If Your Number is Not on the List:
If you did not pass the July 2016 Michigan bar examination, we are very sorry!
To reiterate from an early post, there are a few things you should do:
- First, make sure you had the right seat number. For both exams in 2014 and 2015 and the February 2016 exam (and thus, we suspect it is the same for this exam) the seat number that bar exam students should be looking for is the actual seat number that they were in (which might not necessarily be the same as the original seat number you were assigned).
- Second, do not panic. Check out this Note to those who Fail the Bar Exam for some encouragement as well as advice on where to go from here. Wait for your results to be mailed to you and try not to freak out about it. If you were close to passing, definitely consider the possibility of appeal. If you are considering utilizing our services for your Michigan bar exam appeal, please sign up to be on our list early! That is, email us (at firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us at 248-228-5547. (You are welcome to read this post: I am considering appealing my bar exam score. What is the next step?) You will receive a free consultation, no strings attached. We have a stellar bar exam appeals passage rate but we only take on a limited number of appeals each. Even without knowing your score, we recommend you put yourself on the list if you are considering an appeal. You are not committing to anything but you still preserve your place in line. We fill up very quickly. The good thing about appealing a July bar exam score is that appeals will be due on about November 14. And results usually take 3-4 weeks. So you would know by December 14 whether you have to gear up for the February bar exam (and you would have an additional two and a half months to gear up!).
- Lastly, consider consulting us about private tutoring or applying for our small Michigan bar exam class (we accept only a very limited number of students). See all of your Michigan bar exam options by clicking here! We think you will find our private one-on-one or small group services to be a nice change of pace from your commercial bar review course.
