American Bar Association Cuts U of M Slack
On Law School Upgrade
Oct 6, 2005, 11:17 AM EDT
MEMPHIS, TN - The American Bar Association says the University of Memphis law school remains out of compliance for continued accreditation. But the ABA has acknowledged the university's progress and will meet with university officials next October.
The sanctioning body earlier this year threatened to lift the aging law school's accreditation.
The ABA said in a recent letter it wants a response by the university by the middle of August with plans for a new law school building and what the Legislature has done to pay for it.
University of Memphis officials hope to renovate space in the Customs House downtown for the law school.
Law school dean Jim Smoot says everyone involved wants to put the law school downtown.
