FAMU Law School Warned It Is Not Meeting Standards
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida A&M University's law school is getting a warning that it is not meeting standards needed to maintain its accreditation.
The American Bar Association this week sent a letter to FAMU officials detailing problems it found with the law school based in Orlando.
The accreditation committee questioned whether FAMU was doing enough to prepare students for the exam needed to get a law license. The College of Law currently has more than 600 students.
University officials have been asked to submit a report by May that shows the university is complying with accreditation standards.
FAMU officials said Friday they're already taking steps to respond to the criticism. Interim President Larry Robinson stressed the law school remains fully accredited.
FAMU in December was placed on probation by a regional accrediting organization.
