ABA Grants Two Provisional Accreditations

Western State University College of Law and John Marshall Law School (Atlanta) received provisional ABA accreditation yesterday. Given that there are less than 200 ABA-accredited law schools, this is a pretty big deal—it grows the pool of ABA-accredited schools by over 1%. (Western State was already provisionally accredited, but they appeared to be in serious jeopardy of losing that status last summer).
