Ohio and Maryland have notched their highest bar exam pass rates since 2013 and 2014, respectively.

Both jurisdictions on Monday announced the results of their first-ever online bar exams, administered Oct. 5 and 6—making them the first outside of Idaho to unveil pass rates on that exam, which was given in 30 states.

In July 2019, 73% of bar exam takers passed.
