Twenty-nine Pepperdine Law graduates were sworn into state and federal courts in front of friends and family in a special ceremony on Tuesday, May 24 at the School of Law in Malibu, California. The ceremony celebrated graduates who passed the February 2011 California Bar Exam.
The results of the February Bar Exam were recently released, and Pepperdine enjoyed a 92 percent passage rate for all first-time test takers. The overall passage rate for first-time takers from ABA-accredited law schools was 64 percent.
The ceremony celebrated the graduates’ achievement. The Honorable John P. Doyle, a judge on the Superior Court of Los Angeles County’s North Central District, administered the state oath. The Honorable Bruce Einhorn, retired Federal Immigration Judge and director of Pepperdine’s Asylum Clinic, administered the federal oath.
Tim Perrin, vice dean of the School of Law, congratulated the graduates on their achievement. “We rejoice with our graduates on their success on the bar exam. Once again our students have been rewarded for their hard work and diligence in preparing for the exam. We are proud of each and every one of them,” he said.
