The Mississippi Supreme Court says a person seeking to become a lawyer has to pass the bar exam within three attempts or they will have to go back to law school for at least 12 semester hours before they can retake the test. After going back to law school and successfully completing the 12 hours or additional course work, an applicant will be permitted to take the bar exam one additional time.

The change comes after the annual passage rate on the Mississippi Bar exam has dropped from 79% in 2014 to 48% last year.

It's to take effect with the February 2020 bar exam.

Mississippi Bar exam statistics show that 9.8% who took the exam in February had previously failed three or more times. In July 2018, 7.9%, had taken the exam at least three previous times.

The number of students passing the twice-a-year bar exam has been on a downward trend over the last several years.

The pass rate was for 2018 was 48%.

In 2017, the pass rate was 52%.

In 2016, the pass rate was 68%.

In 2015, the pass rate was 75%.

In 2014, the pass rate was 79%.
