Law Grads Perform Well on Virginia Bar

By Brett Wilson | April 25, 2014

Regent University School of Law graduates claimed a 100 percent pass rate on the February 2014 Virginia Bar Exam for first-time testers. This result places Regent at the top of law school pass rates in Virginia—well above the state's average of 69.96 percent pass rate for all first-time takers. The Virginia Board of Bar Examiners announced results on Thursday, April 24.

"I was very gratified to see the results of the February Virginia Bar Exam. Regent Law graduates performed better than those from any other school in Virginia," said Jeffrey Brauch, dean of the School of Law.

Regent graduates had a higher pass rate than other law schools in Virginia such as George Mason University, the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, and Washington and Lee University.

Regent's overall pass rate for test-takers, including students who have previously taken the exam, was 69.57 percent: more than ten points above the 59.41 percent pass rate for all schools in Virginia.

This also placed Regent's average pass rate above the College of William and Mary, the University of Richmond, and Washington and Lee University.

"These results reflect a lot of hard work by these dedicated men and women and by the outstanding faculty that trained them. They also reflect God's blessing and grace in their lives," said Brauch. "They are now ready to serve clients and their communities with excellence and integrity. Today is a day of joy!"
