FULLERTON, Calif., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Western State College of Law at Argosy University, the oldest law school in Orange County, California, is pleased to announce that 83 percent of its graduates taking the State Bar of California's Committee of Bar Examiners exam for the first time in February 2014 were successful.
"We are thrilled that, for seven of the past eight California Bar exams, our graduates have outperformed the state average for first-time test takers from ABA-approved law schools," says Allen Easley, dean of the law school. "Our graduates have demonstrated the value of their legal education at Western State and their commitment to the future of the profession."
Western State has produced more than 11,000 graduates, many of whom serve across California and around the country as respected judges, teachers, politicians, government administrators and practicing legal professionals. This marks the third consecutive year that Western State graduates have exceeded the pass rate for California law schools. In all, 68.6 percent of the first-time exam takers from California American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law schools succeeded.
The three-day General Bar Examination is administered twice a year, in February and July. The exam consists of three sections: a multiple-choice Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), six essay questions and two performance tests that are designed to assess an applicant's ability to apply general legal knowledge to practical tasks.
If the Western State College of Law graduates who passed the February 2014 California exam satisfy other requirements for admission, they will become members of the State Bar of California.
