Approximately 76 percent of Empire School of Law graduates who have taken the California Bar Exam have passed. Over the last five years, Empire School of Law has consistently achieved one of the highest pass rates for California accredited law schools, including being ranked second in the state on the February 2004 exam and fifth in the state on the July 2010 exam.
