Shareholder Greg Murphy Elected to Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association
Moulton Bellingham PC is pleased to announce that Shareholder and Board Member Greg Murphy has been elected to the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association. It was at its 1893 Annual Meeting that the ABA created its first section, the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. The Section's Council and Accreditation Committee are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) as the national accrediting agency for programs leading to the J.D. In this function, the Council and the Section are independent of the ABA, as required by DOE regulations. All state supreme courts recognize ABA-approved law schools as meeting the legal education requirements to qualify for the bar examination; forty-six states limit eligibility for bar admission to graduates of ABA-approved schools. Murphy served on the Accreditation Committee for five years, and also chaired the committee.
