UCI Law Gets Full Accreditation from the ABA

This accreditation would not have gone so smoothly without the hard work, dedication and vision of many people, beginning with Dean Chemerinsky and the founding faculty and staff.  Thank you! [Update: The official press release is here.]

Brian Leiter has just posted this on his blog:

I was just forwarded the e-mail confirming that milestone.  Not a surprise, of course, given all that’s been accomplished in a remarkably short time, but this also means that UC Irvine will be subjected to U.S. News.com ranking next year.  The lawyer/judge reputation survey results are very hard to predict; it will be interesting to see how the academic reputation survey comes out (UCI ought to get a top 20 score there, but we’ll see if that happens).
