More than three-fourths of Texas law school graduates who sat for the Texas bar exam for the first time in February scored well enough to pass, according to the Texas Board of Law Examiners in Austin. Of the 367 Texas law school graduates who were first-time test-takers, 281 (76.57 percent) passed, according to the Texas BLE. That pass rate is lower than the 87.89 percent, or 341 of 388, first-time test-takers who passed the February 2011 exam.
With a 92.59 percent pass rate on the February 2012 exam, Baylor University School of Law in Waco takes first place among Texas’ nine American Bar Association-accredited law schools in terms of the percentage of grads passing the exam on their first try.

Congratulations to all!
