ABA Votes to Defer Action on Proposal to Help CA, NY Law Schools by Pushing Job Data Collection to 10 Months After Graduation
Following up on Friday's post, ABA to Vote Today on Proposal to Help CA, NY Law Schools by Pushing Employment Data Collection to 10 Months After Graduation: Deborah Jones Merritt (Ohio State), Council Declines to Act:
The ABA Section of Legal Education’s Council voted unanimously today to defer any action on the Data Committee’s proposal to push back the date on which the ABA measures JD employment outcomes. ... Any change from the current date requires careful evaluation–and, given the value of comparing outcomes over time, should have to overcome a strong presumption against change.
