UCLA Law Bar Passage Rate Greatly Exceeds Statewide Average


November 26, 2013​ -- UCLA Law graduates continue to enjoy remarkable success on the bar examination. Results from the July 2013 California exam are in, and approximately 89% of the Class of 2013 passed on the first attempt. The pass rate for all first-time takers from UCLA Law was 88%. Our rate, the second-highest among California law schools, far exceeded the 68% bar passage rate for first-time test takers in the state.

In addition, UCLA Law graduates excelled on other state bar exams. For those taking the New York Bar Exam, for example, the passage rate was an impressive 96% for first-time test takers, among the highest in the state.
