FIU Law graduates excelled on the February 2020 Florida Bar Exam, surpassing the statewide average pass rate by more than twenty percentage points for the fifth consecutive exam. The College’s 81.8% pass rate ranked it second among all Florida law schools – and within one additional passing taker of ranking first for the seventh time since 2016.
“Today’s news brings a glimmer of optimism during a time of great uncertainty,” said Dean Antony Page. “Our graduates should be very proud of their accomplishments.”
FIU Law’s Class of 2019 employment rate, submitted to the American Bar Association this week, is also the highest in the College’s history. Of the 143 graduates in the Class of 2019, 90% are employed in full-time, long-term jobs that require bar passage or for which a J.D. degree is preferred, with an additional 5% employed in other full-time professional positions or seeking masters degrees.
“The training our graduates receive at FIU Law – both from Associate Dean Luis Schulze and Assistant Dean Raul Ruiz, and from the rest of our faculty – prepare them not just to succeed on the bar examination, but also to thrive in a legal profession that now, more than ever, needs capable, ethical attorneys,” said Page.
