Ethnic minorities 'fare better' in Bar exam

Ethnic minority students have fared far better in this year's Bar Vocational Course results, says the Council for Legal Education (CLE). The pass rate has risen from 85 per cent to 89.5 per cent. CLE registrar Graham Hamer says he is still concerned about the disparity and Birkbeck College is being commissioned to carry out a detailed analysis of the results.
