Trinity Law School Will Never Be ABA Accedited

It was already kind of a long shot that the law school I graduated from was ever going to pursue accreditation by the American Bar Association. Now it appears that this pursuit will never happen in light of the 75% bar passage requirement that the ABA is set to adopt as an accreditation standard. h/t Patterico's Pontifications blog

FYI - The bar pass rate for Trinity Law graduates over the past 7 to 8 years has been less than 20%. When you consider that the average pass rate for first time takers of the California Bar Exam is 70%, that's pretty awful. And it doesn't seem to be getting better.

What is worse is that they claim to be a school founded on ethics. They tell their students "if you come to our school you will make a difference in this world" while the majority of their students will never ever be able to practice law. My parents both graduated from this school, and now are jobless and hopeless swallowed by debt. Non-aba schools should be outlawed. In my opinion, they are greedy criminals that leach from the Christian and American dreams "to make a difference and achieve your dreams." They should be ashamed.
