The ABA Is One Step Away From Eliminating The LSAT Accreditation Requirement

GRELSAT2National Law Journal, ABA Moves Forward With Plan to End Law School Admission Test Requirement:

The American Bar Association law school accrediting arm on Friday approved a plan to remove an admission test requirement for accredited law schools.

The change, approved by the ABA Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, must be adopted by the ABA House of Delegates. If passed, it will pave the way for schools nationwide to more easily use the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and other tests besides the Law School Admission Test.

Interesting how the ABA is revamping accreditation standards in the midst of multiple law schools suing the ABA over those accreditation standards... the word "feckless" comes to mind.
