Tennessee University’s Law School Wins Long-Sought Accreditation

The American Bar Association has granted Lincoln Memorial University’s Duncan School of Law provisional accreditation, after a lengthy dispute concerning the ABA’s approval, the university announced on Monday.

The bar association and the university had been at odds for years over the school’s accreditation. Three years ago, the ABA denied the school’s bid for provisional accreditation, prompting the school to file a federal antitrust lawsuit against the bar association.

The school dropped the suit in 2012 and said at the time that the two sides had pledged to move forward cooperatively.
