In recognition of her accomplishment, Cespedes was invited to address the 5th District Court of Appeals' Oath of Admission Ceremony on Monday, October 7, 2013. She joined other speakers with the distinction of achieving one of the top test scores. Only five examinees were selected for this honor from over 2,300 examinees that passed the exam.
"It is a proud moment for a law school dean to learn that one of your graduates was a top scorer on a Bar exam," said LeRoy Pernell, FAMU College of Law Dean. "Ms. Cespedes is one of the reasons why the passage rate of our first-time Bar examinees has improved by nearly 22 percentage points since 2009. We are very proud of her accomplishment."
