Florida A&M still in accreditation jeopardy; Denver launches employment stat site

It was a BAD week for…

Florida A&M University College of Law, after the American Bar Association sent the school a second warning regarding its accreditation.

The law school received a list of areas to improve upon in February from the ABA. Florida A&M University has since made many improvements, demonstrating compliance with many of the areas where it initially fell short. However, the ABA remains unconvinced that students at the law school are prepared well enough to take the Florida Bar Examination.
