The American Bar Association has granted Florida Coastal School of Law a reprieve from disclosing its weak bar pass record to current students by July 2.
The ABA stayed a requirement that the school inform each student of its recent first-time bar pass rates in Florida and Georgia—broken down by quartiles—as well as which quartile of the class the student falls into based on their grades. Hence, there is no need for a federal judge to immediately step into the fray over the school’s accreditation status, according to a motion in opposition of Florida Coastal’s request for a preliminary injunction filed Monday by the ABA. The bar pass disclosure is one of several requirements the ABA’s accreditation committee imposed in April after finding the Jacksonville school out of compliance with its standards pertaining to admissions and academic support.
