As regular ATL readers already know, the results of the July 2006 New York bar exam are now available. They’re public and online; you can access them here (scroll down, to the boxes organized by the applicant’s last name).
The July 2006 test takers were, on the whole, pretty smart cookies. Pass rates rose in all major categories. Courtesy of the New York State Board of Bar Examiners, some interesting statistics:
On a more random note, one of you was kind enough to review the list of passing candidates and pick out some of the more interesting or colorful names. We’ve collected them after the jump.
Please note that this list of quirky names was compiled and emailed to us by a tipster. We can take no credit (or blame) for the selections, and we don’t know the tipster’s selection criteria. Let’s just say that some are more obvious than others. For what it’s worth:
A nice sampling of names of those who passed the July ’06 NY bar:
GOUVEA, CARLOS PAGANO BOTANA PORTUGAL
GAY, ROBERT ALOYSIUS
FUGINA, KATHRYN M.
FATTEY, CHRISTOFER CRAIG
DONG, RONG GUO
NUTTER, JOHN COBB
SERVICE, CHRISTOPHER ALBANE
COCKBURN, SHELIA ANNETTE
We’re big believers in due process around here. If you’re one of the above-named individuals, and you’d like to challenge your inclusion on this list (or make any other comment), please email us. Thanks.
