Accredited Law School

aba aals american schools

A law school that has been approved by the state and the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), the AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION (ABA), or both.

In certain states—for example, California—it is acceptable for a law school to be accredited by the state and not by either the AALS or the ABA. In most states, however, only graduates of AALS or ABA accredited law schools are permitted to take the state bar examination.
