Recent University of Hawaiʻi graduates of the William S. Richardson School of Law have outscored others taking the two latest state bar exams—the July 2014 exam and the February 2014 exam, according to newly released results.
While 63 percent of all test takers passed the July bar exam, 69 percent of UH law first-time takers passed, with 66 percent of all UH takers passing. Meanwhile, the February bar exam results showed remarkable success for those graduating from the UH law school’s evening part-time program, with 89 percent of first-time takers from that program passing the February 2014 test. In other results from the February test, 71 percent of all UH first-time test takers passed the exam, 62 percent of UH takers passed and 60 percent of all takers passed.
“We are especially gratified with these results, which show how exceptional our evening part-time program students are, especially considering they spend long days at work or caring for family, and then come to law school for classes that sometimes last late into the evening,” said School of Law Dean Avi Soifer.
