Campbell Law Produces Top Bar Passage Rate on July Bar Exam

RALEIGH, N.C. –The results are in and Campbell Law stands at the top of the list on the North Carolina Bar Exam. Boasting a 94.53 percent bar passage rate, Campbell Law Class of 2012 graduates outperformed all other North Carolina law schools on the July 2012 North Carolina Bar Exam, leading the state in both first time bar passage and overall bar passage. 

“I’m so thrilled for the Campbell Law Class of 2012, an extraordinarily closely-knit and hard-working class,” said Campbell Law Professor Melissa Essary, who served as dean of the law school throughout the entire tenure of the Class of 2012. “Their work ethic, sense of community, and Campbell Law’s outstanding program of legal education combined to put them at the top. The Campbell Law Class of 2012 was my last graduating class as dean, and they have my heartiest congratulations.” 

Campbell Law’s overall record of success on the North Carolina Bar Exam has been unsurpassed by any other North Carolina law school for the past 26 years. 

“Campbell Law students do not take a for-credit class in preparation of the bar exam,” said Campbell Law Director of Academic Support & Bar Success Sha Hinds-Glick. “This score, as well as our consistent success on the North Carolina Bar Exam, is indicative of our culture and practical curriculum, as well as the commitment of our students, faculty, and staff. This is an accomplishment that everyone associated with Campbell University and Campbell Law can be proud of.”
