Florida Coastal Cleared By ABA; Law School Is Found To Be In Compliance With Accreditation Standards

Florida Coastal (2017)Following up on my previous posts (link below): Jacksonville Daily Record, Florida Coastal Cleared by ABA; Law School Is Found to be in Compliance With Accreditation Standards:

The requirements imposed 20 months ago on Florida Coastal School of Law by the American Bar Association related to the school's alleged noncompliance with ABA accreditation standards were removed Tuesday.

At its May 16-18 meeting, the ABA's Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar reviewed the evidence and concluded that Florida Coastal has demonstrated compliance with admission standards.

“We are grateful that the ABA Section’s Council has recognized the hard work and dedication of the Florida Coastal students, staff and faculty. Our 2018 entering credentials are at or above 43 other law schools, and our Florida first-time Bar passage rates are better than five out of six comparable schools in 2018 and all comparable law schools in February 2019. We look forward to continued improvement in our outcomes and working with the ABA on our transition to a non-profit law school and non-profit university affiliation,” said Florida Coastal Dean Scott DeVito.
