Above the Law

"Speaking of law schools, if you're thinking of going, this is the kind of analysis you should undertake"


"I have never before formally endorsed a 'commercial' outfit. Advise-In Solutions is more than another test preparation company. It is a full-service program with the objective of helping every student enrolled in the program earn his or her best score on the LSAT, helping those students put together impressive applications to law school, and actually providing them with the chance to simulate the law school experience prior to matriculation. The biggest difference between Advise-In and other companies is its founder, Dr. Kyle Pasewark."

The ABA’s Abdication of Responsibility: Winners (Law Schools and The Bar Cartel) and Losers (Law Students) in the Rule Abandoning the LSAT (and Any Testing Requirement) for Law School Admissions

The reason to take off testing requirements is simply to respond to a tough market for law schools where a lot of law schools—many of whom probably shouldn’t be in business since what they do is put a lot of people in debt that they’ll never get out of—need bodies in seats to pay their bills. This is regulatory capture in its fullest sense—the ABA is doing the bidding of those it is supposed to be regulating while doing nothing—harming, actually—those who are supposed to be the beneficiaries of its regulation.

ABA Proposal to Reduce Full-Time Faculty Requirement: Law Students (Present and Future) Should Make Their Voices Heard

The ABA’s proposal to jettison the requirement that full-time faculty teach the majority of upper-level courses is a terrible idea.  The ABA is proposing to replicate what undergraduate institutions have been doing with adjunct faculty, with no protections for students.  If you’re in law school now, or are thinking about going, or if you care about the quality of your lawyer, you should take up the ABA on its invitation to comment on the proposed change. Contact information below.

More Adjunct Faculty in Law Schools: ABA Oversight Once Again Looks Like a Fantasy

The ABA, whose oversight of law schools is supposedly in the interest of law students, seems up to its old tricks, i.e., being little more than a shill for law schools. The latest proposal from the ABA is to eliminate the requirement that at least half of law school upper-level courses be taught by full-time faculty.  What law schools could do with their adjunct faculty is different and better than what undergraduate institutions can do. Law schools can do that right now; many do, to their credit. But they’re asking for a lot more. Why? Most likely, so that they can and will do exactly what colleges have done—draw from a pool of unemployed or marginally employed lawyers and others because that’s the cheapest labor pool.  Not the best but the cheapest. Period.

Law School, Without the LSAT? Not on the American Bar Association’s (Selective) Watch

Two weeks ago, news broke that Rutgers School of Law–Camden was publicly censured and fined by the American Bar Association for utilizing standardized tests (such as the GRE, the GMAT, or the MCAT) rather than the LSAT to admit a percentage of several incoming classes since 2006.
