Concordia Law achieves 100% ultimate bar passage rate

The results are in, and Concordia University School of Law has achieved a 100% ultimate bar passage rate according to data recently released by the American Bar Association (ABA). This means that 100% of Concordia’s 2016 graduates who took the bar exam have passed within two years of graduation. Even more impressive? Concordia is one of only four law schools in the nation to achieve a 100% two-year passage rate, alongside Yale University, The University of Chicago, and University of Wisconsin. 

The ABA released its comprehensive data on the Class of 2016’s ultimate aggregate pass rate on April 19, 2019. Nationally, the two-year pass rate for all qualifying test-takers came in at 88.57 percent. 

“This is outstanding news for the entire Concordia Law community, and a great achievement on the part of our graduates” said Dean Elena Langan. “It has been a banner year for us, not only achieving the milestone of full ABA approval, but also receiving continued recognition for our bar passage results, high value, practical training, and employment outcomes for our alumni.” 

What sets Concordia apart? 

Impressive rankings aren’t the only thing that make Concordia University School of Law distinctive. Our student-to-faculty ratio of 10 to 1 is among the lowest in the region — meaning students benefit from each other through interactive classes, and from professors who care about their success. Our average annual tuition is just $19,000 — comparable to state schools — putting a private, nonprofit legal education within reach. Merit scholarships and service grants are guaranteed, regardless of class standing or GPA, fostering a challenging yet collaborative student experience. And with a campus in the heart of downtown Boise, Idaho’s state capital and legal hub, students benefit from hands-on, experiential service learning opportunities embedded in the Boise legal community. 

Concordia University School of Law is accepting applications for the fall 2019 semester through August 1st, 2019, with full-time and part-time program options.
