bar exam rates, bar passage rates

Summary: New data from FindTheBest analyzes and compares first-time bar passage rates and law school tuition to determine the law schools with the best value.

According to a new chart of data from FindTheBest, paying the most for law school does not always increase your chances of passing the bar exam on the first attempt.

On the other hand, it does not seem to hurt your chances of passing on the first attempt either.

The chart shows that 100 percent of law graduates from the University of Wisconsin pass the bar on their first attempt. They pay tuition of $21,365 to attend law school. At $40,000 per year, the students at Marquette do just as well. The reason for this is that students from both of those law schools can be admitted to the state bar using the diploma privilege, which does not require them to sit for the bar exam.
