LETTER FROM CHANCELLOR OF UMASS SCHOOL OF LAW TO STUDENTS

The American Bar Association Accreditation Committee has recommended to the Council on Legal Education that our law school be granted provisional ABA approval.

The Committee concluded the following:

“In accordance with Standard 102, the Committee concludes that the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Law has established that it is in substantial compliance with each of the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools, and has presented a reliable plan for bringing itself into full compliance with the Standards within three years after receiving provisional approval. Therefore, the Committee recommends to the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar that it grant provisional ABA approval to the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School of Law.”

The Council is scheduled to meet on June 8 in Boston to take up the Committee’s recommendation.

So many individuals of incredible talented and dedication have contributed to this cause, and I am grateful to all of them. The journey continues.

Jean F. MacCormack
Chancellor
