Six years after opening, Liberty University’s law school has been awarded full accreditation by the American Bar Association.
Approval came Aug. 5 from the ABA Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar at the ABA’s annual meeting in San Francisco.
Liberty’s law school opened in 2004 and obtained provisional ABA approval in February 2006.
“Now that the law school has reached this milestone in only six years since it opened, we are ready to move forward with new and exciting programs,” said Dean Mat Staver in a news release.
The school has plans for LL.M. degrees, a masters in public policy, and a Ph.D. in law, according to the news release.
