Miles Law School Has 0% Bar Passage

Miles Law School Has 0% Bar Passage

I was looking at the bar passage rate in Alabama and noticed that Miles Law School had a 0% passage rate for first time test takers. It is a state-only accredited school but that is still amazingly low. It seems to me that a school's accreditation should be at risk when it is graduating students who cannot even pass the bar. What is the difference between that and diploma mills with a ZERO PERCENT passage?

This goes for ABA-accredited, state-accredited, and non-accredited law schools.

Wow- that's downright tragic.

On the upside, the school costs only $125 per credit hour, so most of the students aren't taking on any debt.

How about they pay me $100 per credit hour and not even bother to sit for the bar?

Wow. You'd think even states that allow apprenticeships have higher pass rates than that.
