Graduates of Georgia State University’s College of Law topped the Winter 2011 Georgia Bar Exam results, released late last month.
Statistics from the Supreme Court of Georgia Office of Bar Admissions show that GSU students had the highest pass rate among first-time test-takers (96.4 percent) and the highest pass rate among all who took the test (94.8 percent). These students also charted the highest average score for the Multistate Bar Examination, the national portion of the test.
“These are very high pass rates,” said Steven Kaminshine, dean of the College of Law. “We are extremely proud of our students’ performance and, more importantly, excited for them as they are admitted to the bar and enter their careers as attorneys.”
The GSU College of Law has ranked in the top third of law schools in the U.S. News and World Report’s list of America’s Best Law Schools for two years running. In the past year, the College of Law was named the no. 1 Best Value Law School by National Jurist magazine and was ranked the no. 2 law school in the nation for Financial Value at Graduation by U.S. News and World Report.
