Of the members of the Class of 2008 from Loyola Law School that took the California Bar Exam, 87% (or about 323 students) passed. This represents a 9% increase over July 2007. However, that still puts LLS behind Pepperdine Law School, which had a pass rate of 89%. Passage rates were up statewide, according to the California State Bar.
While LLS has definitely improved its bar passage rate, it still has some work cut out. The Stud hopes the Class of 2009 will keep LLS bar passage numbers strong.
