81 Percent of LMU’s First Law Grads Pass Bar

More than 80 percent of Lincoln Memorial University John J. Duncan Jr. School of Law’s first class of graduates passed the state bar exam, Knoxnews reports. The school, which is in the midst of its second attempt to receive accreditation from the American Bar Association, sees the results as validation for the rigor and quality of the program. “I think this concrete evidence of successful training and education will have a significant impact on that accreditation committee — a significant and very favorable impact,” Dean Parham Williams said. “This is proof positive that we have been doing great things.”
