BREAKING NEWS: Department of Education committee rebukes the ABA

In the same meeting where the accreditation body that certified for-profit colleges like Corinthian Colleges was de-recognized, The National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) " recommended that the department suspend the [ABA]'s ability to accredit new members for a year." The NACIQI censured the ABA for failing to meet its own student achievement standards. How the mighty have fallen.

What does this mean?
  • The scam movement has brought the predatory practices of law schools to light.
  • The Department of Education sees that allowing a lobbying group to certify new members in its industry is not a great idea.
  • If the legal industrial complex's history of intransigence continues, then the day that an ABA accredited law school closes may not be too far off.
What did the ABA have to say in response? Take it away, Barry Currier: 
"The council believes that it is operating in compliance with the recognition criteria," Currier said in a written statement, "but will make any changes to its accreditation standards and rules of procedures that are necessary to stay in good standing with NACIQI and the Department of Education."


  1. So USDOJ strong-armed the ABA into accrediting cesspools and now USDOE screams high-handed outrage.

    I'm from the government and I'm here to help you.

    1. And the Department of Agriculture has a section that runs the National Forests and posts signs that say: "Please do not feed the animals or then the animals won't learn how to take care of themselves." They also have a section that runs the Food Stamp program.
