Summary: The American Bar Association accrediting committee is requiring a plan from NCCU Law regarding their compliance issues before a June hearing.

The American Bar Association is requiring officials from North Carolina Central University School of Law to appear before their accrediting committee in June. The public notice in December from the ABA to the school states that they found the school not compliant with their standards.


The ABA accrediting committee has requested the school provide them with a report by February, way in advance of their June meeting. The notice states, as reported by WRAL, “If the information provided in the written report demonstrates compliance with the standards listed above, then the committee may find the law school to be in compliance with the standards and cancel the hearing.”

NCCU officials responded with a statement explaining the school’s plan to “continue to develop and implement strategies to address” the concerns raised by the ABA. NCCU Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye said, “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.”

NCCU School of Law emphasizes that they are still in full accreditation status. Their statement goes on to explain, “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.”
