New ABA Data Lists SLU LAW Grads in Top 15 for Bar Passage

In February 2020, the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar released a comprehensive set of data on bar passage outcomes for ABA-approved law schools.

Law students studying in the Vincent C. Immel Law Library.

The new data measures the number of 2017 law graduates who sat for a bar exam and passed it within two years of graduation.

Saint Louis University School of Law had a passage rate of 97.96% while the national average was 89.5%. This puts SLU LAW at 14 out of the 198 U.S. law schools, coming in just behind Harvard and New York Law and just above Cornell University.
