When Will July 2019 New York Bar Exam Results be Released?

July 2019 New York bar exam results should be released around the last week of October or first week of November. (Our formal guess of the release date is Tuesday, October 22, but it could really be anytime at the end of October or beginning of November!) Update: New York Bar Exam results are out as of approximately 8:00 AM on 10/23/19. We will update this page shortly! 

When Will July 2019 New York Bar Exam Results be Released?

Note that the New York State Board of Law Examiners seems to like releasing results on Tuesday through Friday most of the time (when releasing July results, they seem to like Wednesdays and Fridays, and when releasing February results, they seem to like Tuesday and Thursday)  Like many state boards, they tend to avoid releasing results on Mondays, though in July 2017, they released results on Monday afternoon.

You can judge for yourself when you think New York will release the July 2019  bar exam results. Here are the last ten July results dates for the New York bar exam, including the day of the week:

I think I failed the New York Bar Exam! Can I reserve a spot for tutoring or a course? 

UBE course, fail the UBE, failed the Uniform Bar Exam, fail the Uniform Bar ExamYes. We have multiple options for top-notch UBE tutors (who have passed the New York bar exam!) and have helped several students pass the UBE. Our spots fill up quickly so we truly recommend early application so that we can reserve your spot if need be! To read more about our New York Bar Exam tutoring click here.

The best deal that we offer for your money is our highly regarded, small group Uniform bar exam course. It also fills up the very quickly as we have very limited spots. So we highly recommend early application or reservation. It is tailored to exactly what is tested on the Uniform Bar exam.  Note: You are not required to use the spot if you temporarily reserve the spot. It will merely be held for you.

You should also check out our myriad additional resources, including our MEE one-sheets (for sale in our online store), a New York Bar Exam seminar (which covered a lot of what was tested on the last bar exam!) and our New York MEE course. We limit the number of students for private tutoring and that can attend our seminar and course.

*Note, just because you reserve a spot (as your Plan B!)  does not mean you will “jinx yourself!” In fact, most of our students who reserve a spot for private tutoring or our other services end up not needing them (even though they are convinced they failed!). Why is this? It is because feelings do not correlate with results! This is is why — even if you are absolutely convinced you failed — you may have indeed passed! Please see this post about how to deal with worrying about bar exam results before they are released!  You are also welcome to contact us if you find you cannot stop worrying!

    I respectfully disagree.

    July 30-31, 2019 was a much later administration than recent years.

    July 2013: Results released after 91 days
    July 2014: Results released after 90 days
    July 2015: Results released after 89 days
    July 2016: Results released after 93 days (exam administered on July 26-27)
    July 2017: Results released after 88 days (exam administered on July 25-26)
    July 2018: Results released after 90 days (exam administered on July 24-25)

    It seems like everyone is trying to estimate the July ’19 release date based on the release dates for prior exams, when the above indicates that a 90-day estimate is significantly more accurate. The 22nd or 23rd would be historically early. That’s only 83 or 84 days, respectively, from the second day of our exam. That seems too good to be true.

    90 days from the second day of the July ’19 exam is Tues, Oct. 29th. I have a feeling this will be the day. That being said, Mon, Oct. 28th or Wed, Oct. 30th are also good bets.
