July 2020 Michigan Bar Exam Results Released!
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). This administration, it appears as though the Michigan Board of Law Examiners has again released the results of everyone who passed the bar exam.
July 2020 Michigan Bar Exam results have been mailed and applicants should expect to receive score reports 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!
Note: the board now has specific instructions on requesting your results if you do not receive them.
Here is a list of subjects tested:
- Question 1: Equity
- Question 2: Real Property
- Question 3: Constitutional Law
- Question 4: Civil Procedure
- Question 5: Sales
- Question 6: Personal Property
- Question 7: Torts
- Question 8: Trusts
- Question 9: Family Law
- Question 10: Corporations
- Question 11: Evidence
- Question 12: Criminal Procedure
- Question 13: Workers’ Compensation
- Question 14: Contracts
- Question 15: Criminal Law
July 2020 Michigan Bar Exam Results
If your number is on the list, congrats!
If you passed the July 2020 Michigan Bar Examination, congratulations! Please check out this Congratulatory Note to Those who Pass the Bar Exam, as well as a description of swearing-in ceremonies in Michigan. Those in Michigan (and many states) will have to attend a swearing-in ceremony to get a 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 is worth it to check out the above post!
Note: given the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect most swearing-in ceremonies to take place online.
If you are looking to design a perfect swearing-in ceremony, we also have a description of how to do that here. However, this assumes an in-person swearing-in.
If your number is not on the list…
If you did not pass the July 2020 Michigan Bar Examination, we are very sorry!
Note: If you did not pass, your immediate thought may be that you completely bombed the exam. It is natural to feel this way! However, wait for your score report before making assumptions about your score. You may be very close to passing!
There are a few things you should do:
- First, make sure you had the right seat number. For the 2014 to the February 2020 exams (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 on the day of the exam (which might not necessarily be the same as the original seat number you were assigned). Recently, the Board has refused to tell examinees their seat numbers over the phone so if you do not have your seat number, you will have to wait for a copy of your results to arrive in the mail.
- 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 come in the mail, and try not to freak out about it.
