Campbell Law ranks second on February N.C. Bar Exam

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Board of Law Examiners for the State of North Carolina has confirmed that Campbell Law School ranked second among the seven North Carolina law schools for first-time bar passage on the February 2014 North Carolina Bar Exam. Of the six Campbell Law graduates who sat for the exam for the first time, five (83.33%) passed.

Only Duke University led Campbell Law on the bar exam, with all seven of its first-time test takers passing.

“We are excited that these graduates can now be referred to as our colleagues,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “This is a tremendous achievement for each of them, and the beginning of what we believe will be long and fruitful careers as professional and community leaders. I speak on behalf of the entire Campbell Law community when I offer my most sincere congratulations to them.”

In all, 65.42% of total first-time test takers from North Carolina law schools passed the examination.

Of all applicants that sat for the bar exam, including out of state and repeat candidates, 56.44% (355 of 629) passed.

Thirteen repeat testers from Campbell Law also passed the exam.
