Statement from NCCU: School of Law

North Carolina Central University (NCCU)’s School of Law was founded in 1939 and is entering its 78th year as a top-ranked public law school. As a flagship program of NCCU, the university is committed to the academic success of all of our students who have entrusted us with their legal education. The school has a strong legacy of service that is consistent with the American Bar Association’s mission of increasing public understanding of and respect for the rule of law, the legal process, and the role of the legal profession at home and throughout the world, and assuring meaningful access to justice for all persons. In response to the recent American Bar Association (ABA) letter, NCCU continues to develop and implement strategies to address the concerns noted by the ABA Accreditation Committee. The Law School maintains its full accreditation status.

NCCU Chancellor Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye: “NCCU remains dedicated to the School of Law and its mission of providing a high quality legal education while preparing citizens of North Carolina and beyond for service and leadership in the legal profession. We will continue our commitment of critical resources, including human capital and financial support, to ensure the School of Law remains in compliance with the American Bar Association standards.”
