The results of the July 2019 Florida Bar Exam were released this week and St. Thomas Law continues to improve its first time bar passage rate with 71.4% of our 119 graduates who sat for the exam earning a passing score. The score lands us among the top six law schools in Florida ahead of Florida Coastal School of Law (71%), Nova Southeastern School of Law (65.9%), Florida A&M (61.1%), Barry University School of Law (57.8%), and Ave Maria School of Law (52.6%). It also marks a notable increase from the February 2019 and July 2018 passage rates.
Dean Tamara Lawson expressed her gratitude to the St. Thomas Law community and noted that everyone had a hand in the positive results achieved by our graduates.
“Bar passage is a team sport, and I recognize that every faculty member and every staff member has a role to play in our students’ success. Congratulations to our graduates and their efforts on the exam,” stated Dean Lawson.
The law school family will have now have the pleasure of welcoming our bar-passers and their families back to campus for our traditional swearing-in ceremony to be held on Tuesday, September 24th in our Moot Court Room.
