May 2019

The American Bar Association recently released information on the “ultimate bar pass rate,” which captures the percentage of a school’s graduates who passed the bar within two years of graduation. Nationwide, nearly 88.57 percent of 2016 law graduates who sat for a bar exam within two years of graduated have passed a bar exam. Texas Tech Law posted a 94.44% two-year pass rate. That places the Law School third among Texas schools and the highest ranked public law school in Texas.
