Board of Law Examiners: Duncan Students Can Take Bar Through 2017

The Lincoln Memorial University John J. Duncan, Jr. School of Law received an extension from the Tennessee Board of Law Examiners to achieve American Bar Association accreditation, officials announced today. The board gave the school until December 2017 to earn ABA approval, which means that its students can sit for the state bar exam at least through that time. The extension follows a March 29 visit from the board, in which members met with students, administrators and members of the legal community and observed classes. WATE has the story
