July 2010 Bar Pass Rate

Specific statistics here.  Things that stand out:  out of California schools, only Stanford beat us in passage rate (I'm excluding out-of-state schools because they tend to submit a handful of graduates to the Calbar).  The racial disparity is striking.  The relevant gender equality is also noteworthy (the gals get 1% edge). 

Also, I realize this is petty and small, but I'm still miffed that USF folks gloated about beating our passage rate a few years back.  Glad to see normalcy restored.

Methinks though doth protest too much, Armen. Perhaps you should talk to your therapist about why bar passage rates from three years ago make you feel like less of a man.

Below e-mail was circulated to the NLG mailing list.

Glad to see the art of satire is still alive and well. Check out the "saveourdean" website. Among the site "sponsors" is Goldman Sachs. Classic.

Courtyard, Boalt Hall [2]

We write as members of
the Boalt Hall community concerned over recent criticism of Dean Edley. As
you may have heard, Dean Edley wrote to the Board of Regents on December 9
to remind them of their "moral and ethical" responsibilities to increase
the pensions of University of California executives earning over $245,000.
Taking a moral stand isn't always easy or popular, but we applaud Dean
Edley for doing so.

Although there are a host of problems now plaguing
the University of California system, we agree with Dean Edley that this is
an issue our community needs to address URGENTLY. While all of us have had
to undertake sacrifices - rising tuition, cuts to financial aid, and
layoffs - the demand letter serves as a timely reminder that, eventually, a
line must be drawn.

Dean Edley's powerful e-mail to the community serves
as a moral challenge to us all. We hope that this dispute does not result
in a "costly and unsuccessful legal confrontation for the University." But
if it does, we want to show the Board of Regents that some of this nation's
brightest young legal minds will be supporting Dean Edley in his fight for
higher executive pensions.
