Following up on my previous post, ABA Places Charlotte Law School On Probation, Censures Valparaiso: the ABA has placed Arizona Summit Law School on probation:
The Council determined that the Law School's admissions practices, academic program (including its academic standards and academic support), and outcomes (graduation and bar passage) have resulted in the Law School now being in a position where only immediate and substantial action can bring about sufficient change to put the Law School on a realistic path back to being in compliance within the time allowed by the Standards and Rules of Procedure.
ABA Journal, ABA Puts Arizona Summit School of Law On Probation:
Among its graduates who took the Arizona state bar for the first time in July 2016, there was a 24.6 percent pass rate, according to information released by the state supreme court. ...
In March, the law school announced that it would sign an affiliation agreement with Bethune-Cookman University, a nonprofit, historically black college in Florida.
Also, the section announced Monday that a teach-out plan for Charlotte School of Law, which is currently on probation for not meeting various standards, has been deferred. The school remains on probation.
