American Bar Association Votes to Continue Accreditation of NCCU's School of Law

Posted December 20, 2020, 9:40AM

The American Bar Association (ABA) and its Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar approved that North Carolina Central University (NCCU)’s School of Law is in full compliance with the ABA Standards and remains accredited for the next 10 years. The decision was adopted at the ABA’s November 19-20, 2020, meeting.

Atty. Browne C. Lewis, dean of NCCU’s School of Law, noted: “The law school’s continued accreditation provides us with the ongoing opportunity to build on the excellence we have established over the last 80 years. We are focused on recruiting high quality students, developing cutting-edge programs and establishing stronger relationships with the members of the Durham community and beyond. This is an exciting time for the School of Law. Our applications are up over 50% and the number of our admitted students who are from other states has steadily increased.”

Congratulations to NCCU, the School of Law and the Legal Eagle Community!
