The American Bar Association granted Jacksonville University College of Law provisional accreditation on Feb. 29.

Jacksonville Law, which accepted its first class in 2022, submitted an application to the ABA in March 2023, a year after its board of trustees voted unanimously to launch the school, and accepted 26 law degree students out of 171 applications for the fall class, and has eight full-time professors and one part time, according to its Standard 509 report.
