The July 2019 Virginia bar exam results are in and as of today 444 individuals who passed are licensed to practice law in Virginia. An additional 35 passed but must address some requirements before they can be licensed.

An admission ceremony before the court will be held Dec. 4, 2019, for new attorneys.

According to the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners, 80% of first-time test takers passed and 75% overall passed the exam. Specific results by law school can be found online.

Once licensed, an attorney can apply for membership in The Virginia Bar Association. Newly admitted attorneys who become licensed in the fall qualify for free membership in the VBA through the end of next year. (Attorneys who become licensed in the spring qualify for free membership in the VBA through the end of the current year.)
