Stetson’s bar passage is number one in the state: 89.3 percent of Stetson grads pass exam

Stetson University College of Law’s bar passage is number one in the state, according to the Supreme Court of Florida’s exam scores and statistics, with 89.3 percent of Stetson graduates passing the Florida bar exam in July.

Among all first-time test-takers in Florida, 77.2 percent of candidates passed the July bar exam.

“Stetson graduates are prepared for the legal profession, and their performance on the July bar is further testimony to their ability to perform with professionalism under pressure,” said Stetson Law Dean Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz.

Stetson’s bar passage rate has climbed over the past decade. Stetson’s bar preparation program includes bar preparation workshops, an essay-grading program and a study plan to help graduates track their progress while studying for the exam. In February, Stetson’s bar passage rate was 93.9 percent, second in the state.
