As of March 15th, the date on which the National Association for Law Placement records law graduates’ employment outcomes, 95% of FIU Law’s class of 2021 were employed. Another 3% chose to pursue master’s degrees in tax law or other graduate degrees.
“From private law practice, to government and public interest, to business and related professional industries, our graduates continue to find satisfying careers throughout South Florida and beyond,” said Dean Antony Page. “Their accomplishments are a credit to their own professional diligence and the degree of preparedness they attain through their legal training at FIU.”
FIU Law graduates also performed well on the February 2022 Florida bar exam, surpassing the statewide first-time passing rate by 9.2%. The College has exceeded the statewide average on fourteen consecutive bar exams dating back to July 2015, and has finished first among all Florida law schools on nine of those exams. Its cumulative 88% first-time passing rate during that span also ranks first among all Florida law schools.
“Our graduates consistently do the work necessary to succeed on the bar exam and have fulfilling careers in the law,” said Assistant Dean of Bar Preparation Raul Ruiz. “The February 2022 cohort studied thousands of questions and spent hundreds of hours preparing for the exam. They should be commended for their effort.”
