From the web page of the Ohio Supreme Court:
The process for seeking a law license in Ohio just got a little bit easier with the launch of a new web portal at supremecourt.ohio.gov.
Applicants to be admitted to practice law in the state of Ohio must undergo a rigorous process that includes the submission of documents and information supporting certain requirements of education, credentials, character and fitness to be a licensed member of the bar.
Once an application is submitted in person or through the mail, the new Bar Admissions Online Services page will allow applicants to access information about their application, see where it is in the process, submit supplemental information and documents, and perform other tasks in one central location.
“This is the culmination of a lot of work by Supreme Court staff to use technology to make the process easier for applicants and ultimately save money by making the process more efficient,” said Supreme Court of Ohio Administrative Director Steven C. Hollon.
The new Bar Admissions Online Services page is available on the Court’s home page (www.supremecourt.ohio.gov) by clicking the button that says “Bar Admissions Online Services.”
