FIU College of Law graduates strike again – earning the highest passage rate among all Florida law schools on the Florida bar exam administered in February.
FIU Law surpassed the statewide average passage rate for accredited schools in Florida by 24 percentage points with a first-time passage rate of 72.2%.
“The education FIU Law provides our graduates continues to prepare them for success on their licensure exam – and more critically, for fulfilling careers as lawyers.” said FIU Law Dean Antony Page.
FIU Law has earned a reputation over the last 18 years for its graduates’ success on the bar exam. Law graduates have finished first in Florida on eight consecutive July bar exams and three of the mid-year/February exams since 2016.
Since 2005, more than 87% of FIU law graduates have passed the bar exam on their first attempt – the highest passage rate of any Florida law school.
