When the Council of the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar met on Nov. 17, it voted to send out for notice and comment a proposal that would allow a fully online law school to apply for, and potentially earn, provisional and full ABA-approval.

The 30-day notice and comment period will end on Jan. 8, according to the Dec. 1 memorandum from Bridget Mary McCormack, council chair, and William Adams, managing director of Accreditation and Legal Education.
