Statement on February 2018 Bar Passage Results

We have now received February 2018 Bar Passage Results from MS.  We congratulate our first time takers who passed at a rate of 73.4%.  This percentage is substantially higher than the state average and substantially higher than UM’s passage rate in February 2017. Repeat takers continue to struggle statewide. Although we celebrate our alumni that passed the bar, we will continue to evaluate how to get that percentage even higher. Our initiatives we recently passed will hopefully result in even better results going forward. Our focus has always been and will continue to be preparing our students for life after law school and giving students the keys they need to succeed both on the bar exam and in practice or their chosen careers.
