Law School Leads Bar Exam Passage Rate Once Again

Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law has once again led the state in percentage passing of the bar exam according to the Board of Law Examiners of the State of North Carolina. In the February 2004 results recently released, the the law school's passing rate was 15 percent higher than the second- place University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law. Campbell’s passage rate also exceeded the total passage rate of all exam takers by 21 percent.

Total applicants taking the exam numbered 375 with 189 passing for a total passage rate of 50 percent. Of that total, Campbell students numbered 14, with 10 passing.

The Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law has consistently led the way in passing the North Carolina Bar since its inception, including a 100 percent passage rate in 1994, the first time all members of a graduating class accomplished that feat in North Carolina history.

Founded in 1976, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law has an enrollment of over 300 students and enjoys a heritage derived from three distinct traditions—the noble tradition of the legal profession, the Christian tradition, and the finer traditions of the rural South, such as friendliness and self-reliance. It strives to educate lawyers who are prepared to serve their communities with legal skills and ethical and intellectual leadership.

Founded in 1887, Campbell University is North Carolina’s second largest private institution of higher education and the second largest Baptist university in the world. Located in Buies Creek, NC, just east of the center of the state, Campbell University combines academic excellence and Christian commitment.
