WACO, Texas - Law students at Baylor University have again led the state of Texas in the passing percentage of the Texas State Bar Exam.

Baylor School of Law had a 92.16 percent passing rate, topping the other eight law schools in the state for the bar exam taken in February of this year. The bar exam is given twice each year. Baylor has placed first 20 of 28 times since 1983, when the Board of Law Examiners first made the results public. The state-wide pass rate on the February exam was 82.23 percent.

Dean Brad Toben, the Gov. Bill and Vara Faye Daniel Professor of Law, noted, "We are pleased and proud." He said the first-place result underscores, once again, the "remarkable team effort" of a law faculty that "always goes the extra mile for our very talented students, and a university administration that is very highly supportive of the Law School."
