Florida A&M University -HBCU

Does anyone know anything about FAMU's law school in Orlando? I heard they are going through some accreditation issues... Any truth to this?

I'm surprised no one touched this.

Yes, there is truth to the accreditation issue at Florida A&M and would strongly advise against applying to this law school. You have more reputable options to choose from if you wish to stay in Florida.

+1 to BlaqBella

I think Howard is the only HBCU law school worth going to, if for example, you have a GPA below 3.0 and/or LSAT in the 140's/low 150's, and you get shut out of the tier 1. The other HBCU law schools have terrible employment prospects and lacking in prestige.

Howard is a joke too. Don't let the NLJ stats fool you. Look into lawschooltransparency for the punchline.

OP, you are better off not going to law school than to go to FAMU.
