“We are thankful for the entire College of Law community who provided a myriad of support to our bar takers,” said Dean Michèle Alexandre.

Stetson Law placed fourth among Florida law schools for the percentage of graduates passing the exam on their first try, according to the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. Bar takers were still riding the tumultuous waves of pandemic-induced changes with this summer’s test, which was held remotely instead of the traditional in-person event.

“We are committed to ensuring every Stetson Law student has a strong foundation upon which to prepare for and pass the bar,” Alexandre said.
