ABA Yet to Issue Accreditation Decision for Concordia Law School

Citydesk2_Concordia_Hawes

The Concordia Law School in Boise will need to wait a little bit longer to find out if the first graduating class will receive permission to practice law in the state of Idaho, according to Boise State Public Radio.

Concordia’s class of 2015 is scheduled to graduate 40 students and the school was supposed to learn its fate on Monday regarding their ability to take the bar exam following graduation. The American Bar Association instead told the school that they will need to wait even longer before a decision is made.

The school does not hold accreditation from the ABA. A multi-year accreditation process is required by the ABA for every new law school. Concordia opened its doors in the fall of 2012, which means they have not reached the three-year period yet. Enrolling in the school was a risk students knew they were taking at the time.

In an ideal world, the law school will have obtained provisional accreditation by 2015. This would permit the first law graduates to take the bar exam in Idaho. The ABA said that instead of voting either way on provisional accreditation, it wants more time to make a decision. A fact finder will be appointed by the ABA’s Council on Legal Education so the school can be looked at further.

Concordia’s request to have its class of 2015 graduates take the start bar exam was denied by the Idaho Supreme Court no matter what the accreditation status of the school is at the time.
