NEW ORLEANS (AP) - LSU law students had the highest rate of passage among students of Louisiana law schools who took the state bar exam in July.

Newly released figures from the state Supreme Court show 120 of 171 LSU law grads who took the test passed - just over 70 percent.

Fifty-six out of 88 Tulane grads - or 64 percent - passed the exam. Out of 203 Loyola grads, 115 - or 57 percent - passed; while 53 of 154 Southern Law School grads passed, for a rate of 34 percent.
