“Law School Accredited,” Ensign, Apr. 1974, 72
The American Bar Association has granted accreditation to Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark Law School. This qualifies its graduates to apply for admission to the bar throughout the United States.
“The attainment of ABA approval is a major milestone for the law school,” said BYU President Dallin H. Oaks. “We are very proud of the outstanding student body and faculty whose efforts are recognized by this action.”
Currently, the law school has an enrollment of 150 and is meeting in temporary facilities. The J. Reuben Clark Law School Building now under construction is expected to be completed by the fall term of 1975.
According to law school Dean Rex Lee, the library already contains some 112,000 volumes, placing it in the top third of law libraries in the nation.
