Responding to concerns that it has not done enough to crack down on underperforming law schools, the ABA has started sanctioning schools that violate its rules, Above the Law reports. A review shows the ABA has taken action against three schools since this past summer, ordering remedial action at the Ave Maria School of Law, imposing a censure on Valparaiso University School of Law and imposing probation on Charlotte School of Law. The schools remain accredited and have two years to comply with ABA standards related to graduation and bar exam passage rates. The ABA Journal has more on the moves and links to the disciplinary notices.
