Standards Review Committee

This committee is charged with reviewing proposed changes in or additions to Standards, Interpretations, Rules, Policies, Procedures, and Criteria. Proposed changes are referred to the committee by the Council for its review and recommendations.

 

2015-16 Academic Year Agenda

For academic year 2015-16, the Council has directed the Standards Review Committee (SRC) to review the following Standards and Interpretations of the ABA Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools:

  • Standard 205. NON-DISCRIMINATION AND EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY
  • Standard 206. DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
  • Standard 305. FIELD PLACEMENTS AND OTHER STUDY OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
  • Interpretation 305-2. [Prohibition on granting credit for participation in a field placement program for which a student receives compensation.]

The Council also has requested that the SRC continue to review the Standards to identify technical corrections and modifications that may be needed and to recommend possible courses of action.

The SRC will meet in September 2015 and will submit a memorandum to the Council in December with suggestions for additional matters the Committee might address during the current academic year.

We welcome ideas and suggestions regarding other issues the SRC might consider during this academic year. Please submit your comments to JR Clark by September 11, 2015.
