Cardozo Graduates Achieve Highest Bar Pass Rate in School’s History

Dec 2, 2008 — According to figures announced by the New York State Board of Law Examiners on November 18, graduates of Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law achieved a 93.2 percent first-time passage rate on the July 2008 New York State Bar Exam.

Of the 310 Cardozo graduates who took the exam for the first time, 289 passed. This is the highest pass rate in the school’s history, exceeding last year’s record of 92 percent.

The state-wide pass rate for first-time takers from all ABA-accredited law schools was 90.5 percent; for all takers it was 74.7 percent.

“I am delighted, though not surprised, by these impressive results, which are just one indicator among many of the strength of our graduates,” said Cardozo Dean David Rudenstine.
