The number of individuals taking the Ohio bar continues to drop. 1,072 people applied to take the July 2016 Bar Exam, according to the Supreme Court of Ohio.

That number is down from July of 2015, when 1,117 people applied to take the July Bar, and 1,351 who sought to take the July 2013 Bar. The 2016 figure represents a 20% drop in applicants since 2013.

The legal profession has become less appealing in recent years due to the inability of law school graduates to obtain jobs, the mountain of debt that comes along with a J.D., and the notion that law school is no longer a good option as a last refuge for students who don’t know what else to do.
