ABA May Pull Florida A&M's Accreditation

Florida AM LogoDiverse Issues in Higher Education: Florida A&M Law School Warned It Is Not Meeting Standards:

Embattled Florida A&M University has been warned that its decade-old law school is not meeting the standards it needs to maintain its accreditation. ... The ABA this week sent a letter to FAMU officials detailing problems it found with the law school based in Orlando.

The accreditation committee questioned whether FAMU was doing enough to prepare students for the exam needed to get a law license. The 31-page report points out that 30% of the students admitted either do not graduate the school or do not pass the bar exam. University officials have been asked to submit a report by May that shows the university is complying with accreditation standards.

It's not like FLorida A&M would get the cream of the crop of applicants to law school. Highly rated schools wouldn't consider the law students at FAMU, but I doubt that they would have any better results with them.
