LSAC Statement on ABA Council Standards Vote

On Friday, May 11, the ABA’s Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions approved the recommendation of its Standards Review Committee to eliminate Standard 503 and to add an interpretation to Standard 501. LSAC supports the Council’s vote to add a “new interpretation recommended by the SRC—viewed as an explainer—that would establish a ‘rebuttable presumption’ that recognizes the centrality of a valid and reliable admissions test in law schools’ admissions policies and practices.” (ABA News Release)

The recommended changes to the Standards will be considered by the ABA House of Delegates in August.

As the ABA stated in its news release, “… the LSAT has been the test used by schools for more than half century. Highly predictive of student success in the 1L year and beyond, law schools have relied on the LSAT in their admissions processes. Additionally, the LSAC has developed other services and programs on which law schools have relied, making the LSAC one of the key national legal education organizations.”

According to LSAC President and CEO Kellye Testy, the proposed interpretation to Standard 501 should “help encourage continued fairness to applicants and transparency, as well as consumer protection.” President Testy anticipates that most law schools will continue to use the LSAT in the admission process because of its proven validity and reliability for predicting success in law school. “The LSAT levels the playing field for applicants from a wide variety of undergraduate schools and, by preparing for the test, students build the skills required for success in law school and in the legal profession.”
