ABA Required Disclosures

UNT Dallas College of Law is not currently accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA). As with any new law school, the process of seeking accreditation from the ABA cannot begin until the College of Law completes its first academic year. We will seek accreditation according to the timeline and requirements of the ABA. Read the Accreditation Statement.

The Dean has informed himself fully as to the Standards and Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools by the American Bar Association. The college administration and the dean are determined to devote all necessary resources and in other respects to take all necessary steps to present a program of legal education that will qualify for approval by the American Bar Association. The law school makes no representation to any applicant that it will be approved by the American Bar Association prior to the graduation of any matriculating student.
