Accreditation

MSCHE Accredited

Albany Law School is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 (267-284-5000).

ABA Accredited

Albany Law School’s J.D. program is accredited by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association, 321 North Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60654 (312-988-6738). http://www.abanet.org/legaled.

The accreditation by the ABA only applies to J.D. programs. The ABA “acquiesces” to non-J.D. graduate programs at ABA-accredited law schools as long as it determines that there are no adverse effects on the J.D. programming.
