I am pleased to share with you some good news. We received our Florida bar results from the February 2017 exam and we ranked in the top five law schools in Florida, scoring just above the state average. I want to congratulate all of our alumni who passed the bar exam. We're very proud of them, and their extremely hard work has paid off.
Ave Law's bar preparation program is led by Professor Chris Buscaglia, and assisted by two alumni--Adjunct Professors Beth Humann (2016) and Sean Blanc (2016).  They once again did an outstanding job of preparing our students to take the bar. My thanks to them and to our very dedicated faculty and staff. We continue to see positive results from the academic rigor and Bar Preparation Program.
The most recent results of the Florida bar underscore our commitment, and my pledge, to make successful bar passage our number one priority. I'm very pleased with the overall improvements we have made. We plan to continue to exceed above and beyond to ensure that this excellent upward shift continues.
Thank you for your continued support for Ave Maria School of Law. I'm grateful to have you as a part of our community. 

God Bless!
