FAMU law school is maintaining its accreditation; Concerns had been raised about school

Share/Save/Bookmark

ORLANDO, Florida — The law school at Florida A&M University is meeting national standards and will maintain its accreditation.

Last year the American Bar Association raised questions about the school based in Orlando. An accreditation committee questioned whether FAMU was doing enough to prepare students for the exam needed to get a law license.

But this week the ABA sent a letter to FAMU officials saying that they had proven that the school is complying with standards and remains on the list of approved law schools.

The school, which was reopened after it had been shuttered during the '60s, first gained its accreditation in 2009.

The school this past year had about 520 students, but the dean says applications for this fall have jumped up at least 20 percent.
