RALEIGH, N.C. – Campbell Law School has been named the second best law school in the country for bar exam preparation by The National Jurist. Of the 50 schools included on the list, Campbell Law is the only North Carolina law school selected for inclusion.

The complete list is available via The National Jurist February 2015 issue.

“It’s exciting for a leading legal education publication to highlight our law school in this fashion,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “We have a lengthy history of surpassing our peers on the bar exam, both inside and outside of North Carolina, and it’s one of the paramount reasons that this law school continues to grow by leaps and bounds.”

In ranking institutions, The National Jurist undertook a statistical analysis of the nation’s law schools using linear regression, comparing incoming LSAT scores with bar passage rates for the classes of 2011 and 2012. The publication also took into account the differences of state bar passage rates. A complete breakdown of the methodology is included within the February issue accompanying the rankings.

Over the course of the past 25 years, 90.89% of Campbell Law graduates have passed the July North Carolina Bar Exam on their first try. That remarkable statistic is tops among the seven North Carolina law schools. On the July 2014 North Carolina Bar Exam 85.61% of Campbell Law’s first-time test-takers passed.
