This statement from the ASL website says:
"The Appalachian School of Law was provisionally approved by the American Bar Association in Academic Year 2000-2001. In Academic Year 2005-2006, Appalachian School of Law applied for full approval from the American Bar Association. In connection with that application, President Ellsworth and Dean Kinsler appeared before the ABA's Accreditation Committee on April 20, 2006.
On April 24, 2006, the Accreditation Committee recommended ASL for full approval. Although this is an important accomplishment, one step remains before we are fully approved. This step will occur in mid-June, at which time the ABA's Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar will consider the Accreditation Committee's recommendation."
I say well done, to so many people.
