There are now 10 accredited law schools in Texas.
UNT Dallas College of Law has won provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, said UNT Law Dean Royal Furgeson. Students will be overjoyed at the good news because graduating from an accredited law school opens up an entire world of job possibilities, he said.
“There are so many jobs—law firm jobs, public service jobs, state, local and federal jobs—that require graduation from an accredited law school,” said Furgeson. “It’s been hanging over their heads. You go to law school to get a job, and this is going to open up every opportunity for them. I’m so happy for them and pleased for them.”
