66 Osaka University students (5th best pass rate in Japan) pass the 2017 National Bar Examination!


On Tuesday, September 12, the results for the 2017 National Bar Examination were announced. Nationwide, 1,543 students passed the examination, which was 40 fewer than last year, but Osaka University had 24 more students pass when compared with last year's examination, for a total of 66 successful applicants. This put Osaka University's pass rate at 5th best in the country, up from 9th in 2016.

Moving forward, Osaka University will continue to strengthen its educational support and follow-up system for current students and graduates in order to rival the universities with the top 4 pass rates (Kyoto, Hitotsubashi, Tokyo, Keio) on this list.

We sincerely request your continued support and cooperation.
