SLU LAW Recognized for Bar Exam Success
Saint Louis University School of Law was recently featured on TaxProf Blog as being ranked 7th in the nation in a recent study identifying which law schools add the most value to ultimate bar passage rates for their students.
The three-year study looked at the ultimate bar passage rate performance of 186 ABA-approved law schools for the period of 2017-2019. SLU LAW’s ranking reflects its overperforming predicted expectations for ultimate bar passage based on the undergraduate GPA and LSAT scores of incoming students.
SLU LAW also recently posted its highest first-time Missouri bar passage rate in over a decade, with 94.6% of its first-time takers passing the July 2023 Missouri bar exam.
On the work done by SLU LAW to prepare students for the bar exam, the Director of Academic and Bar Exam Success, Antonia Miceli said, “This ranking, along with our recent Missouri bar exam pass rate, is a reflection of so many things that make SLU LAW special - hardworking and dedicated students, faculty who apply a truly student-centered approach to their teaching, and a robust and comprehensive academic and bar exam success program that supports students from the summer before their 1L year clear through passing the bar exam. I am so proud to be a part of the SLU LAW community and to play my part in helping our students and alumni achieve their ultimate goal of becoming licensed attorneys.”
Professor Miceli is also the co-author of The Ultimate Guide to the Uniform Bar Examination (Wolters Kluwer 2021). Her work alongside Professor Petina Benigno, the Assistant Director of Academic and Bar Exam Success, demonstrates SLU Law’s investment into its students success.
