Belmont law school gets initial approval from American Bar

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Belmont University's law school has received provisional accreditation.

The university in Nashville received word over the weekend that the American Bar Association had granted the recognition, which is assurance that a college's education program meets quality benchmarks.

Belmont is scheduled to graduate its first law school class in 2014. A law school must be provisionally accredited for at least two years before applying for full accreditation.

Belmont's College of Law is housed in a new building that opened in August and includes a state-of-the-art law library.
