Deans Corner

Dean Jeffrey Brand

From March 9 to 12, the American Bar Association conducted its seven-year visit to the law school. The accreditation team sat in on nearly every class held; met with students, faculty, alumni, and administrators; and carefully evaluated our facilities, resources, and services. In preparation for the visit, we put together an extensive self-study laying out all facets of our operations. We welcomed the ABA visit because it provided us with the opportunity to showcase the quality, mission-driven education we offer, while, at the same time, allowing us to candidly confront the challenges we face. Although we will not have the ABA’s final report for some time, I don’t think the visit could have gone better. At the conclusion of the visit, the accreditation team was extremely positive and effusive about multiple aspects of our operations. To be sure, the team also highlighted challenges—we are under no illusion that we have completely fulfilled any of our lofty aspirations! In the meantime, I could not be more proud of our community. I look forward to continued conversations with the ABA and law school community to achieve our goals.
