    University of Miami School of Law celebrated the admission of 95 graduates into the legal profession last Thursday, September 23, at a ceremony held in Storer Auditorium on the Coral Gables campus. More than 250 family, friends, and members of the Miami Law community witnessed Florida Supreme Court Justice R. Fred Lewis, a 1972 graduate of the University of Miami School of Law, former chief justice, and founder of Justice Teaching, swear in the recent graduates.

    Results of the July 2010 Florida Bar examination were announced last Monday. Miami Law graduates taking the Florida Bar Examination for the first time scored an impressive 86 percent pass rate. The overall pass rate for first-time test-takers was 79.2 percent. A total of 270 UM first-time test-takers passed the July 2010 exam, the highest number from any school. Fewer than one percent separated the top three ranked schools: University of Florida (86.8 percent), Florida State (86.2 percent), and UM (86 percent).
