I don’t know if you’ve heard, but law schools have been shamelessly inflating their employment statistics for years. Shocking, I know.
After cracking down on the way schools report their LSAT scores (a scandal or two helped push in that direction, *cough* Villanova and Illinois *cough*), the ABA has now turned its attention to law school employment data. In fact, the ABA is currently soliciting proposals, so feel free to throw your hat in the ring.

The committee voted overwhelmingly to keep the LSAT requirement for approved law schools.

It has been a tumultuous year in the wide world of law school news: suits filed, requirements imposed, tuitions raised, and accreditation denied. To put it simply, that’s a lot of stuff. Here are some of the top law school stories of 2012:
Top Law School Story of 2012 I: No Overseas Accreditation
The ABA denied accreditation to schools outside of the United States. You could say “boo-hoo” for those foreign lawyers seeking to practice in the U.S. or you could thank the ABA for protecting your legal education and shrinking the legal labor pool in this country. Think about it. Would you rather compete with a bunch of people paying the same as you for the same education or a bunch of people paying way less for the same education and status (and thus willing to accept lower initial pay).
