Impressive Achievement for Tel Aviv University in the Bar Exam
100% of TAU alumni who took the bar exam for the first time this summer passed it successfully
The entire cohort of TAU graduates from the Buchmann Faculty of Law who took the bar exam for the first time this summer passed it successfully, according to the the Israel Bar Association.
Among the World's Leading Professionals
Tel Aviv University surpassed all other universities with the highest average grade and overall passing rate (including those who did not take the exam for the first time) of 94%.
"I am proud of the Law Faculty's alumni for the unprecedented achievement," said Prof. Yishai Blank, Dean of the Buchmann Faculty of Law. "During their studies, our students acquire in-depth and diverse legal education that prepares them for the challenges that await them as legal leaders. The success of our graduates in the bar examination, and also in their continued careers, stems from the faculty's teaching model, which emphasizes excellence and a combination of theory and practice. During their studies, our students learn to analyze complex legal issues, alongside the practical knowledge that they acquire through the University's legal clinics and the wide range of courses from the practical stages that the Faculty offers. All of these of elements can be attributed to our faculty members, who are among the world's leading legal scholars."
Tel Aviv University's Faculty of Law alumni are among the world's leading professionals in the fields of law, politics, business and media. You can find them in Israel's Supreme Court, the government, the Knesset, leading law firms, in media, and of course in hi-tech. Even the President of Israel, Isaac Herzog, is a graduate of TAU's Faculty of Law.
"I do not believe this is the last time our alumni will achieve a perfect passing rate."
New Study Tracks, Small Study Groups, Legal Clinics and Student Exchange Programs
According to Prof. Blank, the impressive achievement of a 100% passing rate is unprecedented, "however, the Faculty has always achieved phenomenal passing rates. That said, we're not resting on our laurels; we are constantly learning and improving. This year, we added tracks that combine law and entrepreneurship, law and computer science, as well as experiential programs that combine theory and practice. We emphasize learning in small groups since the first year of study, and have established dedicated spaces for group study in the library. It is important for us that our students become excellent jurists, but also that they enjoy their studies."
To maintain the impressive results, Prof. Blank explains that the Faculty intends to continue to maintain its uncompromising high level of teaching, and to continue to offer students a variety of unique activities - including advanced workshops in innovative fields, student exchange programs with top institutions, and access to our excellent journals - which prepare our students to become Israel's legal leaders. He added that "Our sophisticated apprenticeship placement system helps our students fulfill their dreams and develop their career paths according to their aspirations. I do not believe this is the last time our alumni will achieve a perfect passing rate on the bar exam."
