Law schools would be required to provide more detailed information about student attrition rates under a proposed change requested by an ABA committee, the ABA Journal reports. Under a resolution approved this week by the committee, law schools would be required to break down their numbers based on students’ LSAT scores and undergraduate grade-point averages. Currently, schools only disclose the overall number and percentage of students that fail, transfer to another school or drop out for non-academic reasons. The committee says more detailed reporting is necessary to promote greater transparency and provide greater consumer protection for law school applicants.
