From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Miles Law School is a law school located in Birmingham, Alabama. It is independent of Miles College, having its own separate Board of Trustees.

Miles Law School was founded on August 26, 1974. Among the founders were Bishop C. A. Kirkendoll of the C.M.E. Church, Dr. W. Clyde Williams, former President of Miles College, former Alabama Judge and State Senator J. Richmond Pearson, and Morris Dees, Founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Graduates of the law school include former Birmingham Mayor Carole Smitherman and Alabama State Senate President Pro Tempore Rodger Smitherman.

Graduates of the law school receive the Juris Doctor degree and may sit for the Alabama State Bar exam. Miles Law School is not accredited by the American Bar Association. The law school offers a part-time four year evening program.

In July 2009, Miles Law School's passage rate for the Alabama Bar Exam first time test takers was 0%. This placed Miles Law School behind all four of Alabama's other law schools: University of Alabama (95.3%), the Cumberland School of Law (91.3%), Jones School of Law (90.7%), and Birmingham School of Law (54.2%).[1]

The Dean of Miles Law School is J. Richet Pearson-Johnson.
