The school-by-school results for July’s California Bar Examination are in and University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall students’ first-time pass rate is once again the best in the state. “I’m really proud of our students, and you know it has to make a teacher feel pretty good,” said Boalt dean John Dwyer. Boalt’s pass rate came in at a huge 94 percent, with UCLA School of Law at 90, followed by Stanford Law School at 85. As for the other major law schools in the Bay Area, 81 percent of students at Hastings College of the Law passed on their first try, 77 at the Santa Clara University School of Law, 73 at the University of San Francisco School of Law and 56 at Golden Gate University School of Law. At least in recent history, Boalt, Stanford, and Hastings students are used to having some of the highest pass rates in the state. For the July exam in 1998, 94 percent of Boalt students passed the bar on their first try with 89 percent at Stanford and 87 at Hastings. The schools came in among the top four for the July 1997 exam with students at the UC Davis School of Law besting all of them that year with a first-time pass rate of 93 percent.
