Sixty-two percent of 811 applicants passed the Michigan bar exam for lawyers last summer.
University of Michigan law school led the way with 33 of 36 graduates passing the July test, followed by Michigan State University at 76 percent, Wayne State University at 74 percent and University of Detroit-Mercy at 59 percent.
Cooley law school had the most graduates taking the test — 265 — but only 40 percent passed.
The statistics, after appeals, come from the Michigan Board of Law Examiners, which oversees the test. It’s given twice a year. (AP)
