Phoenix's Arizona Summit Law School Put On Probation

The American Bar Association, which accredits law schools, has put a local, for-profit law school on probation. 

This week, a council with the American Bar Association sent a letter to Phoenix’s Arizona Summit Law School saying it has been put on probation and should take remedial action.

The letter questions Arizona Summit’s admission policies and says the school is not compliant in preparing its students for admission to the Bar and lacks sound academic standards.

The latest bar exam results show that fewer than 25 percent of first-time testers from Arizona Summit passed — compared with the 75 percent passage rate from the state's two public law schools.

Arizona Summit is owned by a private, for-profit company.
