Subject: Resolution of ABA Complaint
Dear Law School Community,
I am writing to pass on some very good news from the American Bar Association. As you may know, some time ago several members of the Ave Maria Law School faculty filed a complaint with the Accreditation Committee of the ABA. That complaint triggered a proceeding to determine the school's compliance with Standard 405(a), which provides that "[a] law school shall establish and maintain conditions adequate to attract and retain a competent faculty." On Monday I received notification that this proceeding has been terminated. The Committee concluded that the school is in compliance with Standard 405(a) and informed us that we remain on the list of law schools approved by the ABA.
Needless to say, I am pleased with this outcome, which reflects the efforts we have made to build a community of scholars and teachers that is second to none. We now look forward to working closely and collaboratively with the ABA to complete our regularly scheduled site visit in the fall, when the Committee will direct its attention to our continued compliance with Standard 405(a), as well as all other applicable ABA standards. We look forward with confidence to a successful site visit in the fall and to a favorable outcome on our request to the ABA for acquiescence, which we formally submitted last month, to our planned relocation to Florida for the 2009-2010 academic year.
I have informed President Dobranski of this significant development and he has asked me to convey his best wishes to the law school community and his support for our on-going efforts.
