A California State Bar committee stocked with law school deans recommended on Wednesday that the Supreme Court reduce the bar exam passing score from 144 to as low as 135.

The Law School Council endorsed setting the state’s passing score between 135 and 139, a lower range than the 141 to 144 that a previous bar-commissioned study had suggested. A 135 score is the most common pass score, or cut score, in other states. An Aug. 25 letter signed by 19 of 21 ABA-approved law school deans recommended the score be temporarily set between 133 and 139 while the bar completes its analysis.
