The FAMU College of Law has been provisionally accredited. As stated by the American Bar Association, new law schools must obtain provisional accrediation before being considered for full accrediation.

According to officials at the College of Law, with provisional accrediation, law schools have all the rights of a fully-accredited law school and graduates are entitled to the same recognition.

The story “3 university programs receive full accreditation,” which ran in the Monday, Sept. 13 issue of The Famuan, stated otherwise.

The Famuan strives to be factually correct. If you see any errors, please contact the Famuan in room 309 Tucker Hall, or e-mail
