Daniel Denton, a December 2010 graduate of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, has earned the highest score on the February 2011 Texas Bar Examination. Denton will have the honor of addressing the audience at the State Bar of Texas’ New Lawyers’ Induction Ceremony that will take place in Austin on Monday, May 23.
This is the first time that a Texas Wesleyan law graduate has finished with the top score.
“The Texas Wesleyan University School of Law community is proud of all our February bar passers. We are especially proud, however, of the achievements of Daniel Denton,” Frederic White, dean of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, said.
“Obtaining the highest score in the state against 1,149 other test takers is quite an extraordinary achievement. Good show, Mr. Denton.”
Denton earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and worked in pharmaceutical research for 10 years before attending law school at Texas Wesleyan. He graduated first in his class from the law school. Denton is currently clerking for attorney Albert Levy, and plans to establish his own law practice in Dallas, where he currently lives.
