ABA Gaining Public Support In Proposal To Make Law School Admission Tests Optional

Following up on my previous post, So Far, Public Comments Largely Support ABA Proposal To Make Law School Admission Tests Optional:  Law.com, ABA Gaining Public Support in Proposal to Make Law School Admission Tests Optional:

ABA Legal Ed (2021)So far, support for doing away with the standardized testing requirement for American Bar Association-accredited law schools is outweighing those who want to see the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) remain as a requirement. ...

Since mid-June—when Law.com reported that eight comments that had been posted—that number has nearly doubled with less than a month left in the 90-day comment-and-notice period.

The proposed changes include making admission tests for law school, such as the LSAT, optional instead of mandatory. ...

Of the 17 comments on the ABA website as of Tuesday, two do not pertain to Standard 503; of the 15 comments that do pertain to the LSAT exam, 12 are in favor of the proposed changes.
