Howard University School of Law’s Class of 2017 led in the percentage of law students at historically Black colleges and universities who passed a bar examination in their first attempt, according to recently released data from the American Bar Association.

Howard graduates led with 77.2 percent, followed by Texas Southern University with 60.0 percent, Southern University with 57.8 percent, North Carolina Central University with 57.1 percent, Florida A&M University with 51.2 percent and the University of the District of Columbia with 38.5 percent.

Overall, the data showed that nearly 90 percent of all 2015 law school graduates had passed a state bar examination within two years of graduating from law school.

HBCU law school graduates fell below the national average, though more than 80 percent of all 2015 law school graduates of both North Carolina Central University and Texas Southern University passed the bar within two years.
