Valparaiso School of Law won’t be admitting students next year

Earlier this week the public censure given to Valparaiso University School of Law for not being in compliance with admissions standards was removed by the council of the ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. Do note that the school enrolled only 29 full-time incoming students in 2017. Now comes news that the law school is suspending Fall 2018 admissions, working to relocate students to other law schools, and exploring the possibility of affiliating with another law school or relocating the school for financial reasons. From yesterday’s press release:

Valparaiso University, a private university based in Northwest Indiana, today announced its Board of Directors directed the University’s Administration to continue to explore alternative possibilities related to the severe financial challenges facing its Law School. These alternative possibilities might include the possibility of affiliating the Law School with another existing law school, or relocating the Law School to another geographic market with perceived greater demand for legal education. Depending on the circumstances of such changes, approval of various accrediting organizations may be necessary.
