USF Increases Bar Pass Rate

November 26, 2013

The USF School of Law’s California Bar Examination pass rate for first-time takers increased from 70 percent in July 2012 to 75 percent in July 2013.

USF’s pass rate nearly equaled this year’s statewide average of 76 percent for first-time takers from law schools accredited by the American Bar Association. USF’s pass rate jumped by five points at a time when the statewide average dipped one point from last year.

Dean John Trasviña credited the success in part to new initiatives the law school has put in place such as the Bar+Plus exam preparation program.

“This is terrific news, indicates shared success in our new Bar+Plus program, and continues an upward trend in bar results and hiring for USF School of Law graduates,” he said, noting that the “at graduation” employment rate has doubled since 2011. “Most of all, this achievement is a testament to teamwork. The accomplishments of our students are advanced by the dedication of our faculty and staff.”

USF alumni who passed the bar exam will be sworn in to the California Bar by U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh in a ceremony at 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6 in St. Ignatius Church. For information, contact the Office of Career Planning at lawcareer@usfca.edu or (415) 422-6757.
