mentioned in recent correspondence, AMSL is
planning a significant upgrade to its email
systems. We're moving from internal servers to the
"cloud" in order to improve performance and
communication between you and your alma mater.
At the risk of "crying wolf" I'm happy to
report that AMSL's IT staff has brought sufficient
stability to our current servers to navigate exams
and delay the roll-out until after the holidays.
Specifically, AMSL will activate your new email
account on January
4th, 2012. This means you have
more time to save old messages that you'd like to
with compliments to alumnae, Rebecca Mastee, '09
and her colleagues, we are able to provide an
easier solution for saving old messages if you
have access to a desktop version of Microsoft
in Outlook, please create a new POP3 email account
with the following settings:
Name: [user sensitive]

alumni.avemarialaw.edu, only use avemarialaw.edu)

to download all the emails from Outlook Web
Access into Outlook. If there are saved folders
in Outlook Web Access, those emails will need to
be moved to the inbox in order to download to
Outlook. Even using IMAP, they will not transfer
folders attached to the inbox.
hope that helps. If you don't have access to a
desktop version of Outlook or are experiencing
trouble saving old messages, please do not
hesitate to contact me directly. I am happy to
work with AMSL's IT staff and AMSL's outside
vendor to help you with the transition/upgrade on
a case-by-case basis.

the Desk of the President and
Supreme Court of Florida has released bar
examination statistical information developed by
the Florida Board of Bar Examiners for the
Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination
administered on November 5, 2011. This
information applies to those examinees who have an
application on file with the Florida Board of Bar
Examiners as of December 2, 2011, and who
requested that their MPRE score be sent to
of thirty Ave Maria School of Law students passed
this exam, resulting in an 83.3% passage
rate. The overall passage rate of all test
takers reported by the Florida Bar is 79.8%.
Ave Maria School of Law test takers placed fifth
among Florida's eleven law schools, and they also
passed at a higher rate than test takers from
non-Florida law schools.
I am pleased with these results and how they
reflect on our comprehensive commitment to
enhanced bar performance, I know that our students
can do even better over time as more of our
efforts begin to bear fruit.
conclude by congratulating our students for their
success on the most recent MPRE.
