IRVINE, Calif. (AP) - The University of California, Irvine’s School of Law has earned its full American Bar Association accreditation.

The Orange County Register reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/1tU19oZ) that just 203 nationwide are ABA-approved and fewer than 20 in California.

The school opened in 2009 and wasn’t eligible for the accreditation until its fifth year of classes.

Accreditation allows graduates to take the bar exam in any state of their choosing, plus some states require an exam taker to be from an ABA-approved school.

UC Irvine had provisional approval until this week.
