Milhizer Email Re: ABA Acquiescence

From: Milhizer, Eugene R
Sent: Wed 2/18/2009 10:07 AM
To: All Alumni
Subject: ABA Acquiescence

Dear Alumni,

I am pleased to announce that Ave Maria School of Law has received the acquiescence of the American Bar Association (ABA) to our relocation to southwest Florida. Our Law School will retain its full accreditation after it relocates. This decision is the result of careful planning and close collaboration with the ABA.

I am grateful to the ABA for the manner and speed with which it considered and approved our application and look forward to a continuing cooperative relationship. The Law School is an approved applicant for licensure by the State of Florida Commission for Independent Education. Receipt of the ABA's acquiescence is a final step in completing the licensing process.

I would like to thank all of the faculty, staff, students, and alumni who have been so supportive of the Law School as it has proceeded through the acquiescence process. Preparations are well underway to implement the relocation of the Law School and we look forward to a bright future in southwest Florida.


Eugene R. Milhizer
Acting Dean and Professor of Law
An almost identical email was sent to the students with this added announcement: "I invite you to meet with me today at 12:15 p.m. in Room 269 to discuss this important accomplishment."

If you are in attendance at the meeting, please consider sharing your observations with us in the comments.
