RWU Law Grads Top Connecticut Bar Exam Results

Posted by David Logan on 05/20/2013 at 12:12 PM

Many RWU Law grads take the Connecticut bar exam and the state bar provides much helpful data that facilitates comparisons between and among regional law schools.

The results for the February exam were just released and once again RWU Law students prove that they were well prepared.  Here are the first time pass rates of schools that had a dozen or more takers:

                                                    1. Roger Williams 100%

                                                    2.  U Conn 73%

                                                    3.  Quinnipiac 73%

                                                    4.  Western New England 55%

                                                    5.  Massachusetts School of Law (Andover) 50%

                                                    6.  UMass-Dartmouth 50% 


The state also releases data on how each school's graduates perform on the standardized Multistate Bar Exam, and once again RWU grads came out on top of all reporting schools (here is the top ten list):

                                                    1.  Roger Williams

                                                    2.  Fordham

                                                    3.  NYU

                                                    4.  Miami

                                                    5.  Brooklyn

                                                    6.  Pace

                                                    7.  Seton Hall

                                                    8.  Suffolk

                                                    9.  New England

                                                  10.  NY Law School
