A clean copy of the recommended changes can be found here. A June 9th article in the ABA Journal, Legal Ed Section’s council wraps standards review, keeps ban on academic credit for paid externships, briefly summarizes the changes. Recommended changes include the ability to admit 10% of the entering class without the LSAT, a new process for auditing law schools’ employment data, and the refusal to allow paid externships for students. These changes will go to the ABA House of Delegates for concurrence at its annual meeting in August.
