Declining Bar Passage and the Role of Law Schools in Bar Exam Prep and Reform

In 2018, only 75% of first-time examinees nationally passed the bar exam on their first try, following a trend that has seen falling pass rates for the past five years. Why are bar exam pass rates in decline? What can law schools do to help graduates pass the exam?

Deans Emeritus Kellye Testy (LSAC CEO) and Ken Randall (iLaw President) led this live dialogue about the present and future of the bar exam and the role and responsibility of law schools related to the exam.

Discussing why bar exam pass rates are in decline and what law schools can do to help graduates pass the exam were

  • Dean Aviva Abramovsky, Buffalo
  • Dean Len Baynes, Houston
  • Dean Jon Garon, Nova Southeastern
  • Judith Gundersen, NCBE  

This engaging discussion included a Q&A period at the end.
