REMINDER: February 2012 Bar Exam Takers

Bar Exam Review Course Fellowship 

If you will be graduating in January and taking the February 2012 bar exam or graduating in May and taking the July 2012 bar exam in any state and have or plan to register for a commercial bar review course, please complete and submit the Bar Exam Review Course Fellowship form found at .     Then, you will need to submit this form at your exit interview with the Career Planning Office.

The bar review fee of $25 per 9200:600 level series law school credit was only charged during the fall 2010 and spring 2011 semesters.    Students who meet the criteria specified on the Bar Exam Review Course Fellowship form found at will receive exactly what they paid into the bar fee program.

  • NEW!    Effective fall 2011, Akron Law will commit a portion of its resources to help Akron students pay a portion of the cost of a commercial bar review course.   For those graduating in January 2012 or May 2012, we expect to be able to provide $200 in addition to any return of previously paid fees from fall 2010 and spring 2011 semesters.   We project that we will be able to increase that support significantly in the next few years.

Fellowship payments will be processed as early as November 1 for February bar takers and by April 1 for July bar takers.
