Law School Site Visits
Site visits required by the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools and the Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools are organized by the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. These visits may be regular site visits for fully-approved law schools, which take place every seventh year; visits to provisionally-approved schools, which take place each year; visits to schools seeking for provisional approval; and any special site visits that may be ordered by the Accreditation Committee or the Council in accordance with the Standards and Rules of Procedure.

For years beyond the current year, the chart lists the year of the next regular site visit for law schools that are fully-approved by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the ABA.
