Abstract

This article discusses the ABA accreditation of law schools in light of actions taken in the mid-1990's by the American Bar Association's Board of Governors, and the Department of Justice. The latter organization had embarked on an investigation of alleged antitrust violations in connection with the ABA's accreditation of law schools. The implications of the final consent decree arrived at by the two organizations and how it affects the accreditation process are the topics of this article.
