July Bar Passage Rate for Belmont Among Top in Tennessee

Belmont College of Law produced top rankings on the July 2022 Uniform Bar Exam, based on bar passage results released by the Tennessee Board of Law Examiners. According to exam statistics, first-time takers passed at a rate of 86.60 percent. 

“A sustained level of success requires hard work and dedication,” Belmont Law Dean Alberto Gonzales said. “I am proud of our graduates and the support they received from our faculty and staff, as well as from Belmont University and its leadership.” 

97 Belmont Law graduates took the Tennessee bar exam, for the first time, in July, with 84 successfully passing. Despite the disruption caused by COVID, the law graduates demonstrated a strong bar passage rate by finishing among the top tier of law schools in the state of Tennessee. These graduates are now licensed and practicing in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, New York and Tennessee. With California being the final state to report results, the College of Law expects Belmont’s first-time pass rate to increase once scores are released in November.
