Ohio Bar Exam locations: February 2016 & July 2016

From the Supreme Court:

The February 2016 exam will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.  The exam will be held February 23-25, 2016, in Battelle Hall at the convention center.

The July 2016 exam will be held July 26-28, 2016, at the Roberts Centre next to I-71 at Rt. 68.  As you are all now aware, the center is located between Columbus and Cincinnati on I-71.  The center is also located very near Wilmington, Ohio.  Parking at the Roberts Centre is free.

Now that the sites have been announced, Akron will begin working on finding hotel room blocks for Akron Law.  Rooms in these blocks are typically available through the end of the  month before the exam, at a discount.  An announcement will be made, once we have reserved room blocks.

If you want to stay on site at the Roberts Center for the July bar exam, you should reserve a room immediately.  The telephone number for the Holiday Inn is 937-283-3200 (locally) or 1-800-654-7036.  Those rooms were all taken within a couple of hours last year, once the site was announced.

Be aware, though, that you may not have access to the Holiday Inn on-site wi-fi parts of the day before the exam – you may want to ask when you make reservations, if this is important to you.  (The Supreme Court contract with the Roberts Centre in July requred that the wi-fi be shut off until 5 PM the day BEFORE the exam – so some students who arrived early could not access their online study tools.)
