Results for the July 2017 state bar exam have been released and we are excited to share that for the fourth consecutive year, graduates of the University of Georgia School of Law had the highest passage rate both overall and for first-time test takers on the July exam.

These results are the direct outcome of both the tremendous effort these young lawyers put into their preparation for this challenging test and the first-rate preparation and training they receive in the classroom and through real-world experiential opportunities.
