Barry Law Alumni Exceed State Average on February Bar Exam
A record-setting 80 percent of graduates from Barry Law taking the Florida Bar Exam for the first time in February have passed. Barry’s passage rate is four percent above the state average.

Barry’s passage rate exceeded that of the University of Miami (78.9), Stetson University (76.1), St. Thomas University (73.3), Florida International University (78.9), and Florida A&M University (59.3).

Barry’s overall passage rate of 80 percent tied that of Nova Southeastern University. Only three of Florida's ten law schools, Florida Coastal, University of Florida, and Florida State University, had higher scores than Barry.

“These recent results portray the high level of dedication on the part of our students and faculty,” said Barry Law School Dean Leticia Diaz. “Through our intensive Bar Prep program, which incorporates individualized counseling and an excellent academic course of study, Barry law students continue to excel beyond the classroom. We continually strive for improvement in our standards of excellence, which is proven by these results.”
