Congratulations to everyone who passed the July Texas Bar Examination!

Results for the exam were posted Thursday, with the overall pass rate at about 70 percent and the pass rate for first-time exam takers about 78 percent, according to statistics posted on the Texas Board of Law Examiners website.

That’s compared to pass rates of 56 percent overall and 65 percent for first-timers in February 2016.

The University of Texas School of Law was the Texas law school with the highest first-time takers pass rate, followed by Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and Baylor Law School.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all at the New Lawyers Induction Ceremony on November 21 at 10 a.m. at the Frank Erwin Center.

Go to the Texas Board of Law Examiners website for a full list of those who passed the bar and for a breakdown of statistics.
