Western State College of Law, which is part of the embattled Argosy University System, has submitted a proposed teach-out plan with the ABA after losing its federal student loan money, being placed in receivership and conducting a search for an acquisition partner.
Details of what is in the Callifornia school’s proposal were not disclosed on the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar website, where the notice is posted. Barry Currier, the ABA’s managing director of accreditation and litigation, said that other than the notice, everything else about the proposal is not public. Allen Easley, the law school’s dean, did not respond to ABA Journal interview requests.
Dream Center Education Holdings, a Christian nonprofit, bought Argosy from the Education Management Corp in 2017, and since then it has struggled to convert the for-profit college to a nonprofit, the New York Times reported.
