New England School of Law is ABA accredited (since 1969) and is a member of the AALS.
Maybe you were thinking Massachusetts School of Law.

All judges in Alabama, unless appointed to fill a mid-term retirement or death, are elected.  From the lowest probate level all the way to the state Supreme Court our judges are elected.  This is not uncommon around the country.

I grew up in the northeast and was surprised when I moved south and heard about electing judges.

But looking around these days, it is really any better or worse than allow elected officials to appoint them?
