In last February's state bar exams,
University law school graduates scored
higher than graduates from other
Michigan law schools, according to
results made public Thursday. Univer-
sity graduates passed at a rate of 79 per
cent compared to a statewide succedss
rate of 66 per cent.
The exam results marked the first in-
crease in February-to-February test
scores in the last five years. Scores in-
creased nine per cent over last year's
all time low 57 per cent passing rate.
DENNIS DOHOHUE, top staff
assistant to the State Bar of Law
Examiners, said he hopes the low
scores bottomed out last February and
an increase in July's test scores will be
another good indicator of an upward
trend. "We'll have to see if next year
will be any better," he added.
According to University Law School
Dean Terrance Sandalow, there is
traditionally a higher failure rate on the
February test than on the exam given
in July. He said one reason for thelower
February scores is the larger number
of repeaters taking the exam at that
time. Statistics show persons who fail
the test once have a tendency to fail on
successive tries, and thus bring down
the overall average, Sandalow said.
The success rate this year for those
who took the test for the first time was
78 per cent.

graduates (who take the February test)
usually are "out of synch" with their
original classes. For example, such
problems as illness or monetary dif-
ficulties, which might have kept them
out of law school for a time, will have an
ill effect on their success on the exam,
The State Bar exam has two parts,
each of which is worth 200 points. The
multiple choice section has nationally
identical questions and the essay sec-
tion is comprised of questions for-
mulated by the individual states. An
average is taken of the scores on the
two sections and a score of at least 135
is needed to pass..
Graduates from Michigan law
schools typically score higher than the
national average on both the multiple
choice and essay questions.
Percentages of graduates from the
state's other law schools who passed
the exam are: Detroit College of Law,
74 per cent; Cooley Law School, Lan-
sing, 70 per cent; Wayne State Univer-
sity Law School;64 per cent; and the
University of Detroit Law School, 57 per
