“The latest results help to solidify the direction we have taken to establish ourselves as the law school of choice for a broad range of individuals seeking to make law their career,â€ said LeRoy Pernell, the College of Law Dean. “Our bar results continue to trend upward as a result of the strong curriculum and bar preparation programs we’ve implemented, further illustrating that the FAMU College of Law is a law school on the rise.â€
