Law School grads No. 1 in key Pa. Bar Exam pass rate

Temple’s Beasley School of Law graduates led the rankings in first-time pass rates for the July 2006 Pennsylvania Bar Exam.

With a score of 91.16 percent — seven percentage points above the statewide average — Temple Law surpassed the eight other area law schools ranked. Graduates ranked second in overall pass rates, which includes those who have taken the exam multiple times.

“Our graduates are to be commended for their excellent performance,” said Dean Robert Reinstein. “Achieving this milestone comes at time when Temple Law is enjoying increased recognition for its accomplishments.

“Now more than ever, we are attracting top students from around the world as well as renowned faculty who are advancing the study and practice of law,” Reinstein said.

The Law School incorporates academic and practical applications of legal study into rigorous classroom experiences taught by a distinguished faculty of teacher-scholars.

Temple Law is ranked among the best in the nation for its trial advocacy and legal research and writing programs, as well as its international law program, which includes the Institute for International Law and Public Policy, the Transnational Law Program and the LL.M. program for Chinese lawyers — the first foreign law degree-granting program in China.
