Law School Files for Bankruptcy

PADUCAH, KY - The American Justice School of Law filed for bankruptcy today. A news release says the action was taken "to provide full disclosure of financial conditions associated with the school in hopes that all financial and legal matters can be brought to a close." The release goes on to say that bankruptcy proceedings should in no way impact the operation of the Barkley School of Law, Inc., as it is a separate legal entity. Barkley will continue its efforts to achieve American Bar Association Accreditation at the earliest date possible. “We are following our plan of action and continue to gain progress in securing the future success of the school," said Dr. Laxmaiah Manchikanti, sole owner of the Barkley School of Law,. He said, “From the onset we began the process of cutting ties with the previous school and also, began the arduous process of establishing a law school that the students, administration, and our community would be proud of.” The Barkley School of Law maintains its commitment to devote all necessary resources and to take all necessary steps to present a program of legal education that will qualify for approval by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education and the ABA. The School is currently in the final stages of remodeling and renovating the current school facility which will serve mainly as administrative offices and classrooms. Plans are underway for a 40,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art law library that will be constructed adjacent to the current school facility. (posted 3:14 pm by Donna Groves)
