Law School Site Visits

Site visits required by the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools and the Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools are organized by the Office of the Consultant on Legal Education. These visits may be regular site visits for fully-approved law schools, which take place every seventh year; visits to provisionally-approved schools, which take place each year; visits to schools seeking for provisional approval; and any special site visits that may be ordered by the Accreditation Committee or the Council in accordance with the Standards and Rules of Procedure.

The following chart reports the schedule for the current academic year for schools that are full or provisional ABA-approved or have applied for provisional approval. For years beyond the current year, the chart lists the year of the next regular site visit for law schools that are fully-approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the ABA. For a list of approved schools, click here.

Written comments related to current compliance with the Standards for the Approval of Law Schools may be submitted to the Consultant’s Office. The comments should be sent no later than eight weeks prior to the site visit’s beginning date. Comments should be sent to the Deputy Consultant on Legal Education to the American Bar Association, 321 N. Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60654.

NOTE: Site visit dates are posted when confirmed. Please check this site again if the dates for a specific site visit are listed as "TBA".
