May 6, 2021 - Three University of Houston Law Center graduates were among the highest-scoring test takers when the bar exam was most recently administered.

In the February bar exam, Emily Seaman Hoy '20 recorded the second-highest score and Nicholas Kacal '20 placed third, the two best scores of all Texas law schools.

"This showing is particularly impressive, given that this was the first administration of the UBE, and the test takers were faced with Winter Storm Uri and its aftermath," said Dean Leonard M. Baynes.

On the makeup administration of the exam in March, Julie Le earned the second-highest mark.

"In trying circumstances, these Law Center graduates thrived," said UH Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Paula Myrick Short. "This result is a credit to the Law Center's quality instruction and the perseverance and determination of its alumni."
