Not one law school in New York improved its performance from 1998 on the state bar examination given in July 1999. In fact, two law schools � Syracuse and New York � experienced double-digit declines in their pass rates, with Syracuse down a full 10 percentage points to 65 percent of its students passing and New York Law School, with the biggest decline, down 12 percentage points to just 58 percent. New York Law had the lowest pass rate in the state, down from 70 percent in 1998. “This year’s rate is just not us. It’s just a blip,” said Harry Wellington, dean of New York Law School. “We have to look beyond this year’s numbers and look at the broader work here at the school.”
