The George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School has demonstrated that it complies with an ABA accreditation standard requiring sufficient financial resources, according to an announcement posted online.

A December notice had warned George Mason University that the law school did not comply with Standard 202(a) of the ABA Standards and Rules of Procedures for Approval of Law Schools. The standard requires law schools to have sufficient current and anticipated financial resources to carry out a legal education program.

In February, however, the council of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, which accredits law schools, considered the law school’s response. The information “is sufficient to demonstrate compliance,” and the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School remains an approved law school, according to the ABA notice. covered the story.

The section council informed Scalia Law of its findings on March 11, according to a law school announcement.
