Pass rates shuffled in Feb. bar exam

Liberty University’s law school moves to the head of the class with a 100 percent pass rate for the February Virginia bar exam. The five LU students who sat for the test all passed, reports the Virginia Board of Bar Examiners.

Washington & Lee and George Mason law students also scored well in the February session. W&L rebounded from a disappointing 73.3 percent rate in July to 90 percent for its 10 February test takers. Mason holds steady with an 84.85 percent for February, compared to 83.2 in July.

The University of Richmond dropped from 80.7 percent in July to just 48 percent for February, with 25 students sitting for the test.

The February bar exam results generally fall outside the norm because only a relative handful of applicants sit for the test in February. Many of those are law grads who failed the test in a July session.

  1. The sample sizes for the February bar exam on a per-school basis are too small to make meaningful comparisons with the much larger sample sizes in the July bar exam.
