Non-ABA-Approved Law Schools

There are a number of U.S. law schools that have not been approved by the American Bar Association (ABA). Some of these schools are in the process of seeking ABA approval. Before you enroll in a law school not approved by the ABA, you should research the bar-admission limitations of obtaining a degree from the school and enroll only if it is clear that the school will provide adequate legal training. Questions regarding the acceptability of a JD from such schools should be addressed to the bar-examining authority of each state or jurisdiction.
