Belmont College of Law Students Post Strong Bar Pass Results Again

Law students studying in library 2015

The Tennessee Board of Law Examiners recently released results from the July 2016 bar exam, and once again, Belmont Law graduates posted strong scores. Overall, Belmont’s first-time test takers achieved an 87 percent pass rate while the first-time pass rate for the Class of 2016 was 88.3 percent. Belmont’s 87 percent bar pass rate surpasses the state average of all ABA law schools, which is 77 percent.

Belmont Law Class of 2016 graduate Rhett Cash, who currently serves as counsel/government affairs with American Coatings Association in Washington, D.C., said, “Belmont University College of Law prepared me so well for the Tennessee Bar Exam and really pushed me towards success. I credit the entire Belmont Law community for their guidance and support through this exciting and nerve-wracking experience. I couldn’t have made it through without each and every one of them. Congrats to my fellow 2016 classmates, and good luck to all future classes.”

Belmont Law graduates have performed well in other states too.  The pass rate for Belmont’s first-time takers on the July 2016 Bar Exam in Colorado, Indiana and New Hampshire is 100 percent.
