In an effort to retain its ABA accreditation, Thomas Jefferson School of Law will not enroll new students for the spring 2019 semester. Interim Dean Keller said the move brings Thomas Jefferson in line with many other law schools, which only admit new students in the fall semester.

Thomas Jefferson was placed on probation a year ago for being out of compliance with accreditation standards.

The school announced in May that it was vacating its $90 million, 7-year-old campus for rented space in a downtown office building, a move that saves Thomas Jefferson a significant amount of money, although the new space has remained under construction during the fall semester.

Thomas Jefferson is planning for the possibility that the ABA will yank its accreditation.  Thomas Jefferson has applied to become a California-accredited law school, which would enable graduates to sit for the bar there even if it loses ABA accreditation. The State Bar of California’s Committee of Bar Examines will consider the school’s application on Friday. Thomas Jefferson has asked the committee to fast-track its application in light of its ABA accreditation issues.
