ABA Panel Endorses Continued Use of LSAT

The American Bar Association’s Council of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar preliminarily endorsed retaining the LSAT requirement for law school admissions, the National Law Journal reports. In 2011, some members of the ABA Standard’s Review Committee advocated dropping the requirement during an evaluation of the law school accreditation standards. Support for the change waned over time and the council now seeks public comment on the LSAT endorsement and other aspects of Chapters 2 and 5 of the accreditation standards.
