MIAMI (WSVN) - For the third time in a row, graduates of Florida International University College of Law have earned the top bar passage rate in the state.

According to FIU, among Florida’s 11 law schools, FIU College of Law graduates exceeded the statewide average bar passage rate, which is 68.2 percent, by almost 20 percentage points.

On the July 2016 bar examination, 87.5 percent of FIU Law graduates passed the exam.

The announcement follows FIU’s state-leading 84.6 percent passage rate on the February 2016 exam and the 89 percent passage rate on the July 2015 bar exam.

“FIU Law graduates continue to excel, in passing the bar and subsequently in employment results,” said R. Alexander Acosta, Dean of the FIU College of Law. “Our students’ work ethic and dedication, as well as the quality of teaching from our faculty, are evidenced in these results.”

Congrats on passing the Florida Bar, FIU graduates!
