— a representative of the American Bar Association, commenting on the fact that St. Mary’s University School of Law received approval from the ABA on variance related to its online law degree program. The representative could not provide further specifics because ABA accreditation matters are confidential. “We are still working through the approval process by St. Mary’s University leadership and look forward to sharing more information and providing interviews next month,” said Jennifer Lloyd, senior director of communications at St. Mary’s University. “Once approved, St. Mary’s will release the details for this innovative proposed program.”
