Value added: UB law students beat bar-pass predictions

University of Baltimore School of Law graduates passed the bar exam at a rate 7.8 percent higher than that predicted by their LSAT scores, according to a new study by The National Jurist. LSAT scores, with law school GPAs, are widely considered predictors of success on the bar. The magazine’s study, which looked at the classes of 2011 and 2012, employed statistical analysis to determine a law school’s average bar exam pass rate based on its students’ average LSAT scores. UB’s actual bar pass rate for the period was 84.6 percent, while its predicted pass rate was 78.48 percent, putting UB 19th on a list of 33 law schools that added “the most value” to their students when it comes to the bar examination.
