Campbell Law named top performer nationally for bar exam prep per National Jurist

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law School has been named the top performer in the country for bar exam prep by The National Jurist. The accolade marks Campbell Law’s third consecutive appearance on the list.

Per the publication, Campbell Law ranked first when looking at the classes of 2013 and 2014. Graduates passed at an average rate of more than 12.49 percentage points higher than predicted.

The complete list is available via The National Jurist Winter 2017 issue.

“It’s exciting for our efforts to be highlighted,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “Although our bar passage scores have dipped slightly in recent years, as all North Carolina schools have, we are still outperforming by and large and putting our graduates in a position to succeed.”

In ranking institutions, The National Jurist looked at pass rates on a school-by-school basis and compared the actual pass rates for 2014 and 2013, the most recent data available, with the predicted pass rates to find the residual, or the difference between the two.

Since its founding in 1976, Campbell Law School has developed lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion and professional competence, and who view the law as a calling to serve others. The school has twice received the Gambrell Professionalism Award from the American Bar Association, honoring its First-Year Professionalism Development Series in 2003 and the Connections mentorship program in 2016. The school has also been recognized by the American Academy of Trial Lawyers for having the nation’s best Trial Advocacy Program. Campbell Law boasts more than 3,900 alumni, including more than 3,000 who reside and work in North Carolina. In September 2009, Campbell Law relocated to a state-of-the-art building in downtown Raleigh. For more information, visit
