The University of Kansas School of Law has clinched the leading position among 195 ABA-approved law schools nationwide, with a remarkable achievement of a 100% ultimate bar passage rate for all graduates in the calendar year 2021. This feat, validated by the American Bar Association (ABA), highlights the exceptional success of KU Law graduates in conquering the bar exam within two years of graduation.

Understanding Ultimate Bar Passage Rate

The ultimate bar passage rate serves as a crucial metric in evaluating a law school’s performance, gauging the success of a graduating class in passing the bar exam over two years. While passing on the first attempt is optimal, eventual passage within the specified timeframe is essential for upholding accreditation standards. KU Law’s outstanding performance underscores the dedication and resilience of its graduates.
