U of M Law Graduates Post Perfect First-Time Passage Rate on Bar Exam

For release: May 17, 2011
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901/678-2843

Graduates of the University of Memphis’ Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law had a 100 percent passage rate for first-time takers of the Tennessee Bar Exam administered in February.      The overall passage rate for the state of Tennessee was 67 percent for first-time test takers.

“I am extremely proud of our students’ success, which is due both to their hard work throughout law school and to the excellent faculty who taught them,” said Kevin Smith, dean of the Law School.

The Cecil C. Humphreys School is located in the former U.S. Customs House in downtown Memphis, near the city’s judicial and legal community. Recently, preLaw magazine rated the school nationally as a “best value” law school. The Princeton Review ranked the school eighth in “Best Quality of Life” in its Best 172 Law Schools 2011 edition.

In March, a U of M team won the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial national tournament, sponsored by the National Black Law Students Association.
