Passing the bar?

I'm confused.

What is the significance of passing the bar?

I went to jury duty not long ago, and there seemed to be a significance associated with passing through a gate, something very weird to me. I was not picked as a juror, a long story, but my failure to measure up was that I told the truth - it seems to me.
