The University of Kentucky J. David Rosenberg College of Law is not in compliance with an accreditation standard focused on financial resources, the council of the ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar recently found.

According to the March 7 public notice, the law school is out of compliance with Standard 202(a), which requires that current and anticipated resources available to a law school are sufficient to carry out a legal education program and operate in compliance with the standards. The school was asked to submit a report by June 30.

“We are in compliance with all standards but for a standard related to aspects of the college’s budget. We remain accredited, so there is no impact on the college and the outstanding education it provides,” wrote a university spokesperson in an email to the ABA Journal.

The spokesperson added that the university is working to respond to ABA questions.

In 2019, J. David Rosenberg, a senior partner at Keating Muething & Klekamp, donated $20 million to the law school, according to a news release from the university.

The university’s board of trustees voted to add his name to the law school in 2020.
