Charleston School of Law and Drexel University's Earle Mack School of Law are celebrating the news that they have earned full accreditation from the American Bar Association.
"In 2003, we began with a dream to create a second law school in South Carolina, a student-centered law school focused on service to the citizens of the state and region," said law school dean Dean Andy Abrams. "This is no longer a dream, but a reality," he told the Post and Courier.
Drexel also officially got the thumbs-up on Friday, reports the Philadelphia Business Journal (sub. req.).
"This marks an important milestone in the history of Drexel University, which began planning in earnest in 2005 to launch a law school that would raise the bar for legal education," says the law school in a press release. "Drexel sought to create a school that would from its inception prepare graduates for the realities of legal practice."
