Daniel Denton, a December 2010 graduate of Texas Wesleyan School of Law, has earned the highest score on the February 2011 Texas Bar Examination.
This is the first time that a Texas Wesleyan law graduate has finished with the top score. “The Texas Wesleyan 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 School of Law, said. “Obtaining the highest score in the state against 1,149 other test takers is quite an extraordinary achievement.”
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.
