LUBBOCK – Texas Tech School of law graduate Brandon Barnett has earned the highest score in the state on the February Texas Bar exam. Barnett is a December graduate of the school’s class of 2006.

On the past six bar exams dating back to 2003, Texas Tech produced two top scorers – the most top scorers of any Texas law school in that time period.

Barnett, a native of Arlington, is currently attending Marine Corps training.

“It is a tremendous achievement to attain the highest score on the Texas Bar Exam, and we are extraordinarily proud of Brandon and the faculty who prepared him,” said Walter B. Huffman, dean of the School of Law.
