    Proposed Amendments to ABA Standard 316

    1 PM EST

    ABA Standard 316 holds that accredited law schools are not in compliance if within five years fewer than 75 percent of first-time test-takers do not pass bar exams or the schools are not within 15 points of state bar passage rates. However, a proposed change to the Standard would alter the requirement to mandate that schools show that 75 percent of their graduating classes pass a bar exam within two years. The proposed revision would be brought before the ABA House of Delegates in February 2017 at the ABA Midyear Meeting in Miami, Florida. This program will allow attendees to hear the arguments in support of and in opposition to the proposed revisions.
