The ABA has denied the University of La Verne College of Law's application for full approval and withdrawn its provisional status, according to an university news release.
The ABA's overall opinion was that the law school's first-time bar pass rate, which jumped from 34% in 2009 to 53% in 2010, had not sufficiently improved, according to the news release. "We are deeply disappointed, but not defeated," La Verne Law Dean Allen Easley said. "Once we receive the council's formal announcement, we will review the findings and take action accordingly. It remains our ultimate mission to provide the very best law school education and experience possible to our students."
