Announcing the 100-100 Initiative
Reaching 100% Bar passage and 100% Employment
Student success is our number one priority at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. At the September 1 Grand Opening of our new building (see law.utah.edu/new-building), we announced a new 100-100 initiative that set a firm goal of attaining 100% bar passage for first-time takers and 100% full-time professional employment for our new graduates.
100-100 will help ensure student success. For most law school graduates, success is not possible until two immediate goals are attained: bar exam passage and professional employment.
