    Hello everyone!

    AZ Central published an article detailing some current issues Arizona Summit Law School is facing with its accreditation.

    The private, for-profit law school remains accredited for at least 30 additional days and it’s expected it will file an appeal within that time frame. However, it is reportedly putting together a “teach out” plan for its current students and it won’t be able to admit new students until if and when its appeal is successful.

    Roughly 70% of recent Arizona Summit graduates have failed to pass the Arizona bar exam. School officials are allegedly encouraging students to sit for the New Mexico bar which is considered easier. Of the graduates who did sit for the bar in New Mexico, 54% passed in February.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    I’m missing something here. How does passing the bar in New Mexico help if you live in Arizona?

    Some jobs just want you to pass the bar and they don’t care where.
