100% Of First-Time Takers From Shuttered Charlotte Law School Failed February NC Bar Exam

Charlotte Logo (2016)Charlotte Observer, Last Class of Charlotte School of Law Faces Bleak Reality After Bar Exam Results:

A chaotic year at Charlotte School of Law has given way to a disastrous performance by its graduates on the most recent bar examination, according to newly released state figures. Eleven recent alumni of the defunct school took the test for the first time in February. All failed.

Among the Charlotte Law graduates who had taken the test before, eight out of 73 passed the most recent exam. Combined, that gives Charlotte Law an overall passing rate of 9.5 percent — by far the lowest of the state's seven law schools.

Several of the in-state schools saw their overall success rate fall. At UNC Chapel Hill, for example, the combined passing rate dropped from 65 percent in February 2017 to 46 percent this year. ... [O]nly a third of the 15 Wake law grads who took the February exam got a passing grade, according to state figures.
