TJS is giving the impression falsely that its LLM is accredited by the ABA.  In fact the ABA's only interest is that the non JD program do not have an adverse impact on the JD program:

"The ABA reviews these degree programs only to determine whether their offering would have an adverse impact on the law school's ability to maintain its accreditation for the JD program. If no adverse impact is indicated, the ABA "acquiesces" in the law school's decision to offer the non-JD program and degree."

"ABA Approved"

FYI - ABA only accredits law schools.  All Masters in Legal Studies (MLS) and EJDs if accredited would be regionally accredited.  A lot of LLMs like those in Tax would be geared towards attorneys.  I'm not a fan of non attorney JDs. It is like going to medical school and not becoming a doctor.  It also creates a problem because people will assume you are an attorney and can create inadvertent UPL issues.
