Texas Tech School of Law Grads Rank Best of Texas Public Schools on Bar Exam


Texas Tech’s School of Law has ranked the best of any Texas public law school on the bar exam.

Tech Law graduates led all Texas public law schools on the February 2013 Texas Bar Examination with a 95.45 percent first-time pass rate.

Twenty-one of Tech’s 22 test takers passed the exam, putting the law school’s average well above the 84.78 percent pass rate for all graduates of Texas’s nine law schools and only .11 percent behind Baylor Law School, which had the highest rate.

“We are very proud of everyone’s effort on this exam and hope to be able to continue this level of performance into the future,” said Darby Dickerson, Texas Tech Law dean. “I want to extend a special thanks to Professor Cassie Christopher for her efforts this year in establishing the Office of Bar Preparation Resources.”

Professor Christopher weighed in on the school’s success as well, saying “Most of these students studied full-time for two months to prepare for the bar exam, which was an incredible investment of time and effort on their parts. They mastered 23 subject areas and demonstrated their knowledge over the course of two and a half days of essays, multiple-choice questions, short-answer questions, and a simulated writing assignment.”

The overall rate for first-time examinees, including graduates from schools in other states and attorneys already licensed in jurisdictions outside of Texas was 80.74 percent.
