NORMAN, OKLA. — Graduates of the University of Oklahoma College of Law achieved a 95% pass rate on the Oklahoma Bar Exam for first-time test takers – the highest in the state.
The complete results of the July 2019 bar exam were released Sept. 10 by the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners.
A total of 120 OU alumni took the exam. The overall passage rate for OU graduates was 92%, exceeding the statewide overall pass rate by 15%. For over 15 years, OU Law has consistently achieved the top overall passage rate on the July Oklahoma Bar Exam.
OU Law Interim Dean Katheleen Guzman said the result speaks to the college’s high caliber of students and its exceptional educational experience.
“Our graduates’ performance is a testament to the amount of hard work they put into bar preparation, along with the strong academic foundation they receive from their law school education,” Guzman said. “I am incredibly proud of their success, which stems from the dedication of our faculty and staff, who are firmly invested in our mission and our students.”
