This organization is the epitome of spinelessness. According to its website, the ABA has 400,000 members, a large annual budget and about 1,000 employees. Yes, it is comprised of four hundred thousand lawyers. Yet, this “professional organization” is afraid to go to court!
We see the ABA blame US News & World Report and its grad school rankings for the high rate of law school tuition. That's right, debt-soaked law grads. According to the ABA, your large debt load is due to the actions of USN&WR!! How convenient – blame this mess on a magazine. The 400,000 member strong association that is charged with accrediting law schools is – by its own unsupported assertion - not to blame. A magazine has caused the high rate of tuition. (Apparently, the GAO agrees with the ABA’s version of events/fairy tale.)
