The ABA House of Delegates yesterday approved changes to Standard 509 and Rule 16 of the Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools:
These changes clarify the obligations of schools with respect to the reporting and publication of consumer information and strengthen the range of sanctions that may be imposed for violations of the Standard. The changes align employment outcomes disclosure requirements with the reporting requirements previously approved by the Council upon recommendation by the Questionnaire Committee. The changes also mandate disclosure of conditional scholarship renewal data to assure that prospective conditional scholarship recipients are fully informed as to the terms of the scholarship being offered.
