They endured the hassles familiar to anyone who has moved. The phones stopped working a few days last week. Nervous owners sweated over the handling of computers and other precious goods. And for a while, with boxes strewn here and there, it looked as if the place would need endless sprucing up before it felt like home. But in less than a week, Whittier Law School will open after moving from Los Angeles to become Orange County's only nationally accredited law school and newest college.

The final design for Chapman University's new law school building has won tentative approval from the city and passed muster with the Old Towne Preservation Assn.

Western State University College of Law, the county's largest and oldest, will break ground today for a new library, a key step as it prepares to seek accreditation from the American Bar Assn. The law school, a private, for-profit institution in Fullerton, was denied accreditation 10 years ago. School officials say the new library will help meet ABA demands that any institution seeking accreditation have a large law library.

Chapman University is on track to become the only American Bar Assn.-approved law school in Orange County, filling a void created by the departure of Pepperdine University nearly 17 years ago.

"We are really conducting an experiment here, but I think it's one that will work."

With one year to go before it graduates its first class, Chapman University's law school will remain unaccredited for now, after the American Bar Assn. this week reaffirmed its decision to deny the school approval. The decision means the school must submit a new application for the coveted accreditation, and incoming dean Parham H. Williams Jr. said the school will do so in mid-September. That would mean an ABA vote in January, he said.

Chapman University's fledgling law school has lost the first round in its bid for American Bar Assn. accreditation, a setback that prevents it from joining the ranks of the most respected law schools in the country. A bar association committee this week notified the 2-year-old school, which lacks accreditation from any bar, that its curriculum and grading policies were not rigorous enough to meet ABA standards, university officials said Wednesday.

In a first step toward reapplying for American Bar Assn. accreditation, Western State University College of Law will close its Irvine satellite campus this year and consolidate school operations at its 4-acre Fullerton campus, officials said. The shutdown means Irvine's 535 students will join the 833 students at the Fullerton campus this fall. Western State officials plan to build a new law library in an effort to win approval.

Whittier College Law School is planning to leave its Los Angeles campus for an Orange County location this summer, a move that would make it the county's first American Bar Assn.-approved law school, officials announced Monday. The 650-student law school has outgrown its current 60,000-square-foot facility in Hancock Park and expects to welcome its freshman law class to a building twice that size in either Costa Mesa or Irvine this August, said John FitzRandolph, the law school's dean.
