New York Law Journal, Most N.Y. Law Schools Report Higher Pass Rates in Bar Exam:
Twelve of New York state's 15 law schools have reported higher bar pass rates for first-time candidates who took the bar exam in July. The schools largely bounced back from an overall dip in scores last year, when eight schools posted lower pass rates from a year prior.
Most of the changes since last year were small, but four schools—Brooklyn Law, New York Law, St. John's Law and Syracuse Law—recorded increases greater than that of the statewide pass rate, which rose three percentage points to 88 percent. New York Law and Brooklyn Law saw the most dramatic increases, with New York Law rising by 13 percentage points and Brooklyn Law by almost 9 percentage points.
