The 2019 revision to Standard 316 mandates at least 75% of an ABA-accredited law school’s graduates who took a bar exam must pass one within 2 years of graduation. This year, compliance is based on 2017 graduates.
11 law schools have class of 2017 pass rates below 75%. Those schools are:
Charleston School of Law (72.12%)
Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico School of Law (70.87%)
Florida A&M University College of Law (70.83%)
Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (67.32%)
Florida Coastal School of Law (67.29%)
University of South Dakota School of Law (67.21%)
Western Michigan University Cooley Law School (66.01%)
Inter American University of Puerto Rico, Faculty of Law (64.49%)
Mississippi College School of Law (64.15%)
University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (64.06%)
Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law (62.50%)
If a law school is found to be out of compliance with Standard 316, public notice would be posted, and the school has two years to come into compliance. If the school is again noncompliant with Standard 316 the following year, it will be required to appear at an administrative hearing, and the council will determine whether it should withdraw the school’s accreditation or grant a time extension based on good cause, according to the memo.
The lowest ultimate bar passage rate was 62.50%, at Faulkner Thomas Goode Jones School of Law.
