Western State University College of Law Granted Full Approval By The American Bar Association

October 6, 2009

For over 20 years, Super Lawyer Frank N. Darras has taken on insurance industry giants on behalf of the disabled and the elderly. Recognized by his California peers and across the nation by Best Lawyers and as one of the Top 500 Lawyers in America by Lawdragon, this esteemed graduate of Western State University College of Law congratulates the faculty, staff and students for attaining full approval by the American Bar Association.

"Twenty-three years ago, when I attended Western State University, I was given the legal chance of a lifetime. This accreditation is proof positive that quality education and the commitment of the faculty and administration have been there all along and will continue to produce successful members of the legal community," says Darras.

Western State University College of Law is the oldest law school in Orange County, California and its full approval follows the ABA Accreditation Committee's recommendation to its Council of the Section on Legal Education and Admission in early July. See www.darrasnews.com.

"Full accreditation opens doors and is exciting as it permits WSU to do more and appeal to a broader group of students across the nation, adding to its diverse student body. Full approval allows the College of Law to offer specialty training that will enhance the learning experience for students while producing experts in a broad variety of practice areas," says Darras.

"This full American Bar Association accreditation approval is one of the strongest testaments we can receive regarding the quality education we have provided to the future of our school," says William E. Adams, Jr., dean of Western State University. "We have demonstrated our compliance with the high academic standards that have been set before us and are confident that our graduates will be well-prepared to serve the legal community with excellence and a deserving sense of pride."
