Arizona Summit School of Law, which is part of the for-profit InfiLaw System, received notification on March 27, 2017 that it has been put on probation by the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar in part for low bar passage rates. It follows a November 2016 ABA decision that put Charlotte School of Law, another InfiLaw school, on probation. Check out the ABA’s decision and list of required remedial actions for Arizona Summit here.
InfiLaw operates three standalone for-profit law schools. All of them are trying to affiliate with a university to enhance their long-term viability: Arizona Summit Law School has announced it will sign an affiliation agreement with Bethune-Cookman University; Florida Coastal is in the discussion stage with a university and Charlotte School of Law is looking for a university.
