More than 1,800 graduates of Texas law schools breathed a collective sigh of relief on Nov. 4, when they learned they had passed the July Texas bar exam. The pass rate among the 1,827 first-time test-takers — 83.14 percent — was about three points higher than the 80.63 percent pass rate of July 2004, according to the Texas Board of Legal Examiners (BLE) in Austin.

The pass rate for first-time test-takers from Texas’ nine American Bar Association-accredited law schools ranged from a high of 93.51 percent at Baylor University School of Law in Waco to a low of 59.38 percent at Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston.
