North Carolina's Campbell Law School had the state's top bar passage rate in 2012 at 94.53 for first time takers besting in-state competitors like Duke, Wake Forest, and U. North Carolina. The most recent result caps a 26 year history of strong bar pass rates according to a school spokesperson. When asked by the National Jurist Magazine to explain the secret of Campbell's success, the director of academic support said credit goes in large part to an emphasis on practical skills training in the curriculum.
Continuing to dominate the bar exam, after Campbell Law reported a 94.53 percent bar passage rate for the Class of 2012. It was the highest pass rate among all North Carolina schools. Campbell has excelled on the bar exam for the past 26 years, despite not offering a for-credit bar prep course to students.
“This score, as well as our consistent success on the North Carolina Bar Exam, is indicative of our culture and practical curriculum,” said Campbell Law Director of Academic Support & Bar Success Sha Hinds-Glick.
