The law school at Florida A&M has been warned that it is not meeting standards in order to retain is accreditation, according to Diverse Education. A letter was sent to school officials by the American Bar Association outlining problems discovered with the law school, which is in Orlando.

The letter questioned whether the school was working hard enough to prepare its law school students for the bar exam. The ABA released a report, 31 pages total, that says 30 percent of the students admitted to the law school either do not graduate or do not pass the bar.

Officials from the university must submit a report by May that proves the school is complying with proper accreditation standards. The warning letter was not a surprise, as an initial report was released in September.

“It’s not like we have been waiting for the sky to fall,” FAMU interim President Larry Robinson said. He also noted that the law school still has full accreditation.

There are close to 630 students at the College of Law, but applications for next year have dipped by 35 percent. Full accreditation of the law school was acquired in 2009. The entire university was placed on probation back in December by the Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges.
