Minnesota Law Grads (Once Again) Have Highest Bar Pass Rate in State

Minnesota Law grads performed extraordinarily well on the July 2021 administration of the Minnesota bar exam.

Among first-time takers, the bar exam pass rate was an eye-popping 96.3 percent, higher than any other law school in the state and the second highest recorded since the Uniform Bar Examination was introduced seven years ago. The pass rate of Minnesota Law's first-time bar takers was nearly 15% above the state's overall bar pass rate of 81.9%.

Among all takers (regardless of attempt), Minnesota Law grads' pass rate was 94% (also the highest in the state).

Minnesota Law grads have a history of performing extremely well on the bar exam. Last year it was reported that the first-time bar takers pass rate for Minnesota Law grads on the fall 2020 exam was the third best in the nation, behind only Harvard and Yale.
