1. Bar passage:
In the past five years,
among those taking the exam for the first time.
Before I dive into this topic with detail, I wanted to bring your attention to this simple question that was posed to me on my first day at Capital U. Law School...
Q: "When the law school student with the lowest GPA passes the bar, what are they?"
Answer: "A lawyer."
That answer seemed utterly prolific to me; in other words, I had a serious “light bulb” moment. After all, the important thing to your clients, and remember they are the ones who PAY you, is not whether you graduated in the top of your law school class, but whether or not you know and can apply the law. It is safe to say that if you pass the bar, you know and can apply the law. So it makes perfect sense to conclude that your legal education must guarantee that you pass the bar; Capital does that! How about a statistic? 88.4% of CULS students pass the bar on their first try! Not only does Capital provide ‘Bar studies’ courses, but also provides an Office of Professional Development to guarantee that you utilize your education in the legal market! CULS offers students an exclusive database of hiring firms and positions and encourages students to apply as soon as the second semester of your 1L year! Moreover, the CULS staff works hard to ensure that every student is on the ‘right track’ to pass the bar! To conclude, the #1 reason TO ATTEND is “Capital has one of the highest bar passage rates in the state of Ohio.”
