DU Law Students Score Second-Highest on Bar Exam in Pennsylvania

Duquesne University’s School of Law announced a 97 percent passage rate among first-time takers of the July 2008 Pennsylvania Bar Examination.

This historic high pass rate for Duquesne students is the second-highest in the Commonwealth among nine law schools.

Dean Donald J. Guter is pleased with the results.  “We have had an increase in bar passage rates for the past three years,” he said. “Duquesne’s success is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our students, and the support of our faculty and staff.”
