Drake Law School Increases Bar Passage Rate to 96 Percent

Drake Law School improved its Iowa bar exam passage rate to 96 percent from 90 percent a year ago for first time examinees.

Seventy-seven Drake law graduates took the Iowa bar exam in July 2009 as compared with 45 from the University of Iowa and 43 from Creighton University. "We are pleased that our students continue to do well on the Iowa Bar Exam," said Dean Allan Vestal. "This level of success on the new exam format reflects not only the hard work of the students, but of the Law School in providing an education that prepares students to be outstanding lawyers."
