Regent Law Alums Post 2nd Highest Florida Bar Pass Rate

The Regent Law community congratulates Regent Law alumni who took the July 2009 Florida Bar Exam.

The Florida Board of Bar Examiners reports that 87.5% of Regent’s first-time test takers passed, the exam, a rate second to only one of Florida’s ten law schools, Florida State. The overall pass rate for all first-time takers for the July 2009 Florida Bar Exam was 80.0%.

“We have spent the last three years working and praying with these men and women,” said law school Dean Jeffrey Brauch. “This outstanding pass rate is a tribute to our students’ hard work, to a rigorous curriculum—especially in the areas of writing and legal analysis, and to great set of faculty colleagues who train with excellence. We praise God for our graduates’ success.”

Regent’s February 2010 Virginia Bar Exam takers also excelled, with 85.7% of Regent’s first-time takers (and 80% of all Regent takers) passing the exam, a pass rate 19% above the state-wide average and just behind the #1 school, Washington & Lee.
