Number of Law Schools
The Council has accredited and approved 199 institutions and programs that confer the first degree in law (the J.D. degree); one of these law schools is provisionally approved.
Also on the approved list is the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's School, which offers only the LL.M. degree. While the Council’s scope of accrediting authority does not permit it to formally accredit any non-J.D. degree program, it has continuously reviewed this special program since 1958 to ascertain its compliance with the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools that are relevant to its specialized program. The Council appreciates the opportunity to continue to provide this review and support to this distinctive and important program.
