The Nigerian Law School has released the results of the August 2019 Bar finals examination.

According to the information gathered by TNL, a total of five thousand, six hundred and eighty-nine, (5,689) students sat for the Bar finals in which 894 students failed to make it through.

The summary of the results shows that 147 students bagged the first-class degree making it a total of 2.58%, while 741 bagged the second class upper degree making up 13.03%.

On the other hand, 2,246 students got the second class lower degree (39.485), 1,291 with the pass grade (22,695), and 319 students with conditional pass (5.61%).

The result also shows that 41 students were absent while 10 results were withheld. With the summary, it is clear that about 85% of the students who sat for the exam passed that bar final.

Recall that the Council of Legal Education had earlier reviewed the grading system of the Nigerian Law School.

The 2019 results by fact have recorded the highest number of first-class ever.

TheNigerialawyer (TNL) therefore congratulates the soon-to-be-called wigs, as they warm themselves up as prospective gentlemen of the bar.
