CUMULATIVE FIVE-YEAR BAR PASS RATE

Starting in September of 2014, the Committee of Bar Examiners implemented new pass rate reporting guidelines for all California Accredited Law Schools. The following statistics reflect Trinity Law School’s cumulative bar examination pass rate as five-year rolling, annual percentages. The rolling average is calculated by dividing the total number of graduates who take and pass the California Bar Examination over the previous five years by the total number of its graduates who take the California Bar Examination at least once, whether or not they pass during the same period of time. Graduates who choose never to take the California Bar Examination are not counted in calculating a school’s rate.

2005 to 2010 188 95 51%
2006 to 2011 178 96 54%
