ABA: Duncan Law School Does Not Meet Admissions Accreditation Standard

LMU LogoABA Journal, Duncan School of Law Does Not Meet Admissions Standard, ABA Accreditation Committee Says:

Duncan School of Law at Lincoln Memorial University in Knoxville, Tennessee, is “significantly out of compliance” with an accreditation standard requiring that schools admit candidates who appear capable of finishing law school and passing a bar exam, according to an April 5 letter released by the American Bar Association's Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.

According to the communication, the accreditation committee found that the Tennessee law school was not in compliance with Standards 501(a) and (b), which state that law schools should maintain “sound admissions policies and practices” and not admit candidates who seem like they won’t finish law school or bass a bar exam.
