The idea for Ontario Law Exam arose in May 2011 when three law school friends were studying for the Ontario bar exams. At that time, there were no comprehensive practice exams to help students prepare. It seemed bizarre to spend all this time reading and making indices without being able to practice how to navigate your materials prior to the exam (like it's just supposed to come to you on exam day). The friends also felt the Law Society's lack of transparency regarding passing grades and test statistics also unnecessarily increased stress and anxiety for students. After passing the bar in 2011, the friends developed practice questions to help future law students prepare for the exams and OLE was born.
At OLE, the questions are designed primarily to help students become familiar with navigating the bar exam materials and their indices. We feel that practicing with our questions is one of the best ways to reduce stress and remain calm on test day.
Our mission is to ensure each of our students passes the bar. Since OLE's founding, we have administered over 3000 practice exams that have allowed our students enter test day feeling better prepared. See our Testimonials page to see what some of our satisfied customers have to say.
As the first online provider of practice exams for the Ontario bar, we are willing to put our names behind our product and have the experience and reputation to ensure you are prepared on test day.
Best of luck!
