THIS IS INTERESTING: ABA to Impose 75% Bar Passage Requirement as Law School Accreditation Standard. This doesn’t seem unfair, but it will undoubtedly impact affirmative action programs. Bar passage is closely correlated with undergraduate grades and LSAT scores (no big surprise there, it’s all about test-taking) and affirmative action, pretty much by definition, means reaching down into the pool and taking people with lower grades and LSAT scores, and hence a lower prospect of passing the bar.
