The ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar’s Standards Review Committee recommended the rejection of the March proposal that the ABA determine the reliability of the LSAT alternatives and instead consider the following three options:
1. Remove the requirement of a standardized test from the admissions process.
2. Require a standardized test(s) and require the schools to publish which test(s) they will accept. The ABA will make no attempt to test the validity of any of these tests.
3. Continue to require a valid admissions test but eliminate any perceived favoritism towards the LSAT.
Stay tuned everyone. We don’t believe this one is over by a long shot!
