California Unaccredited Law Schools Will Have to Report Drop Out Rates

From the LA Times:

California's unaccredited law schools, which collectively have an 85% dropout rate, will soon have to disclose their attrition rates to prospective students.

State bar trustees voted Friday to require the schools to publish their dropout rates for the last five years.

The 12-to-1 vote came after The Times revealed that students in the state's unaccredited law schools were far more likely to drop out than students at nationally accredited law schools, which have a dropout rate of about 12%.

Students who attended the unaccredited schools said they were not aware that so few students finished their degrees.
