For Second Year, College of Law Outperforms State Bar Exam Average
College of Law graduates have again outperformed the New York State bar passage average.
The recently released July 2015 results show that 79 percent of first time test takers from New York American Bar Association-approved law schools passed the exam, while 83.3 percent of Syracuse University College of Law graduates passed.
