The latest results from Florida’s General Bar Exam have been released and once again law students from my alma mater delivered a stellar performance.
The University of Miami School of Law was among only three schools to have more than 80% of their students pass the July exam. According to the Florida Supreme Court website, 84.2% of law students from UM were successful on the pass/fail test.
My colleague Rebecca Mercier Vargas is a graduate of Florida State University College of Law and candidates from her alma mater also performed well, with 83.9% passing the exam.
Florida International University is the top performer, with 87.8% of its students making the grade.
In all, 1,553 candidates from 12 Florida law schools were approved by the state Supreme Court for admission to the Florida Bar. Induction ceremonies are scheduled for next month.
Looking back on the strenuous academic challenges and stressful plight of law students determined to cross into the law profession, I want to express congratulations to all successful candidates and welcome them to the world of law.
