ABA Panel OKs New Accreditation Standards

An American Bar Association’s (ABA) committee unanimously approved a package of proposed changes in law school accreditation standards on Friday. The changes, which deal with facilities, equipment, technology, libraries and information services, will be presented to the governing council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar at a meeting set for Nov. 30. The committee chair said the proposed changes are designed to modernize standards in light of advances in technology. If the council grants preliminary approval to the changes, they will be publicly posted for notice and comment. Learn more in the ABA Journal
