On Thursday the University of La Verne College of Law received good news regarding its prolonged struggle to achieve American Bar Association accreditation.
The ABA Accreditation Committee sent written notification that it is recommending provisional accreditation while the school works to put itself within ABA standards.
After losing provisional ABA approval last year, the College of Law proposed a three-year plan that would put the school in full compliance with the ABA requirements.
On Jan. 19 a small committee presented the plan that outlined changes that would better prepare students for the Bar exam. The next step for the law school will be a presentation before the ABA Council on March 16 that will decide if provisional accreditation is granted.
A sub-committee of the board of trustees is currently monitoring the College of Law.
