School of Law Boosts N.C. Bar Exam Passage Rate (171 hits)

University’s Passage Rate Third-Highest in State

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Law boosted its North Carolina Bar Examination passage rate to 75.5 percent, nearly 20 percent higher than 2017 results. Fifty-three 2018 School of Law graduates sat for the North Carolina Bar Exam on July 24-25, 2018.

NCCU’s first-time bar exam participants achieved the third-highest passage rate in North Carolina. In April 2018, the university announced that it was investing more than $300,000 to support May 2018 graduates as they prepared to take the North Carolina Bar Examination in July.

“The hard work and commitment demonstrated by our recent law school graduates who sat for the bar exam is well evidenced by this year’s impressive results,” said Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D., chancellor of North Carolina Central University. “I applaud our administration, faculty, staff and alumni at the School of Law for ensuring that our students are successful as they officially begin their career as our newest Legal Eagles.”

The School of Law is in the process of preparing for North Carolina’s transition to the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) in 2019. The UBE provides a transferable score that allows admission to other UBE jurisdictions based on a test taker’s score in one UBE jurisdiction. The law school has formed an ad-hoc committee comprised of faculty, staff and alumni to assist current students with exam preparation for the new exam format.

“Throughout its history and continuing today, the law school’s primary goal is to produce practice-ready legal professionals who are socially responsible leaders in service to the community,” said the Honorable Elaine O’Neal, interim dean of the School of Law. “The School of Law has a proud history of producing attorneys, judges, political office-holders, educators and business professionals who have had a significant impact on North Carolina and many other communities across our country.”
