The University of Florida Levin College of Law achieved the highest passage rate on the July Florida bar exam out of the state's 11 law schools, according to results recently released by the Florida Supreme Court.
Out of 310 UF Law grads that took the examination, 269 passed, resulting in a 86.8 percent pass rate compared to the state's overall pass rate of 79.2 percent. Florida State University (86.2) and Miami University (86) rounded out the top three schools.
"UF Law was first in Florida on the July 2010 Bar Exam, and continues to hold the record of having the most consistently strong performance on the bar over time of any law school in the state. When February and July exam results in the same year are combined to ensure accurate class-by-class comparisons, UF Law ranks first in 2010 and have been in the top two six of the last seven years, 12 of the last 13 years," said UF Law Dean Robert Jerry.
"UF Law is also proud to be the only top-tier law school in Florida, the only Florida law school ranked in the top ten in the nation in the Super Lawyers ranking of alumni and the first-choice destination for most Florida residents seeking a legal education in Florida," Jerry said.
