Jefferson and the bar
Local law school last in state in students passing bar
Columnist Staci Zaretsky of the publication "Above the Law" has published a list of how the state's 21 American Bar Association-accredited law schools did in the July 2012 bar exams. In first place was Stanford, as 93.7% of its grads passed the bar. In last place was San Diego's Thomas Jefferson School of Law, with a pass rate of 52.33%. However, Zaretsky points out that Jefferson improved greatly from its 2011 percentage.
