Liberty University logoA Liberty University search committee has a set of priorities in its search for a new dean of its law school. LU leaders are eager to hear from candidates about strategies to improve first-time pass rates for students on the Virginia bar exam. The News & Advance reports, the law School’s pass rate for first-time test takers of the July 2014 exam was only 50 percent. According to the article, the university credits earlier passing successes to a scholarship assistance which was offered to the first few law school classes to attract top students to a new program, but later dialed back the amount of assistance likely hurting the law school’s recruiting efforts.
