Rutgers-camden Law School Fined Over Avoiding Lsats

Three reasons In its censure document, the bar association committee listed three explanations for the $25,000 fine: the benefit of admitting students without affecting reported LSAT scores, the law school's collection of data without being in compliance, and "the necessity to deter the law school and other law schools from disregarding the requirements of the standards." The fine will go to the accrediting body's work on enforcing compliance with its standards. A spokesman for the bar association said committee members were not available Thursday to discuss the sanctions. Rayman Solomon, the dean of the law school, said most students admitted without LSAT scores had not considered law school until after the last LSAT registration date in May. He said the acceptance of alternate tests was not intended to manipulate rankings, which often use LSAT scores, size of application pool, and size of the student body as criteria. "It was not related to rankings at all. We reported every LSAT we had . . . we did this to round out the class, and to identify qualified people who decided to come to law school after the May registration, for the most part," Solomon said. visit http://www.philly.com/philly/education/20131206_Rutgers-Camden_law_school_sanctioned.html





Rural China to Law School Is Journey of Inequality





You also get your daily dose of humor and entertainment!! And one of the conclusions of the report is that the number of law school applicants will continue to dwindle and affect the demand metrics. At the same time, growth in the number of ABA-approved law schools will result in greater competition among law schools vying with each other for better students. Even in the face of steep decline in demands for legal services and in the numbers of law school applicants, the number of ABA-approved law schools has continued to rise from 183 in the school year 2000-2001 to 201 in 2012-2013. visit http://www.jdjournal.com/2013/12/07/sps-december-report-says-law-school-future-dismal-but-management-holds-the-key/





S&Ps December Report Says Law School Future Dismal, But Management Holds the Key





China's top education officials acknowledge inequities and pledge to narrow the gaps by extending more financial resources to rural teachers and students. Some top universities suggest they will give rural students a break in test scores for admissions. "Countless people have fallen on this road," Mu said. "It's a miracle that I even attended middle school." The third of three sons, Mu was born in 1988 in the mountainous southern province of Guizhou, for years China's poorest with per-capita GDP of $3,100 in 2012. He grew up in Tiaohuashan, where hay and manure litter narrow alleyways, water buffaloes bathe in muddy creeks and locals offer incense to earth deities to pray for harvests. His father supplemented farming with a scrap-metal business. visit http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/underdog-story-rural-china-law-school-21060294
