The WSJ reported today (sub. req.) that California continues to have one of the lowest bar passage rates in the country. In 2004, only 44% of the test takers passed. The passage rate is even lower for those licensed in other states who take do not take the multistate. (Reportedly 28%.) The article focused on the fact that the former Dean of Stanford Law School, a constitutional scholar, just failed. Moral of the story is that you better plan on studying hard if you plan to relocate to California and take the bar exam there. Sounds like she didn’t!
