Attorney-at-Law

THE BUTCHER’S BILL

In Uncategorized on 02/15/2018 at 15:27

The statistical wizards at The Glasshouse have posted the pass-fail numbers and percentages for the Tax Court admission exam for non-attorneys (no lawyers need apply) for the last eight biennial cycles (that’s sixteen, count ‘em, sixteen, years).

Here’s my take on those numbers. And please remember, like a lot of lawyers, math is not my long suit.

92 on average took the test, and 12 on average passed. The best year was 2014, with an 18.25% pass rate, the worst was 2004, with a 5.56% pass rate.

Casualty rates like that make you weep.
