Following up on my previous posts (links below):  Council, ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, Notice of Finding Of Significant Noncompliance With Standard 202(a) and (d):

Florida Coastal (2017)At its November 21-23, 2019, meeting, the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association (the “Council”) considered the status of the Florida Coastal School of Law (the “Law School”) and concluded that the Law School is not in compliance with Standard 202(a) and (d). ...

The Law School has been asked to submit a report by January 15, 2020, and to appear before the Council at its May 14-16, 2020, meeting. The Council will consider the written report at its February 20-22, 2020, meeting. If the information provided in the written report demonstrates compliance with the Standard listed above, then the Council will find the Law School to be in compliance with the Standards and cancel the hearing.
