Still More on the ABA, AALS, and Law School Diversity

Continuing our coverage (here, here, and here) of the proposed new law school diversity accreditation standards:  Thom Lambert (Missouri-Columbia) on Truth on the Market agrees with David Bernstein that "the ABA is attempting to put its own political agenda above the law" with this new interpretation:

The requirements of a constitutional provision or statute that purports to prohibit consideration of gender, race, ethnicity or national origin in admissions decisions is not a justification for a school’s non-compliance with [the diversity standard].

He notes that "Bernstein’s view that the ABA is calling for law schools to ignore laws that conflict with its own agenda is consistent with my experience with the Association of American Law Schools (AALS)."
