ABA Pigs Out of Compliance with 17 Regulations, but the Spree Continues
“The ABA drew intense scrutiny on Thursday from a federal panel that reviews accrediting agencies. The National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity, which advises the U.S. education secretary on accreditation issues, used a meeting here to review the applications of 10 accrediting agencies to be recognized by the federal government. ...
Of the 10 agencies being reviewed on Wednesday and Thursday, all were recommended for continued recognition. ... But several members of the committee expressed reservations about approving that status for the ABA, which was found to be out of compliance with 17 regulations, including the need to consider student-loan default rates in assessing programs; to solicit and consider public comments; and to set a standard for job placement by its member institutions.
Arthur E. Keiser, chancellor of the Keiser Collegiate System, said that an accrediting agency would not accredit an institution with 17 outstanding issues. "There is a real concern that this agency doesn't get it," he said. Anne D. Neal, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, was one of three committee members who opposed the motion to continue the bar association's recognition, saying that she had no confidence it would be in compliance within a year.” [Emphasis mine]
Clearly, the ABA does not care if commodes continue to pump out legions of jobless JDs.
“In any event, here’s the ABA’s response:
Representatives of the association assured the committee that the changes recommended by the department were already in the process of being carried out and would be completed in time.
I’ll believe that when I see it, and not a moment before.”
Sure these pieces of trash are working on correcting the ABA’s SEVENTEEN violations - and Lauren Graham’s toes just locked, after I gave her six orgasms in the span of ten minutes. Trust must be earned - not given away freely.
ABA’s History of Deception:
Keep in mind that on January 27, 2010, then ABA president and pathologically dishonest Carolyn Lamm falsely stated that the ABA cannot limit the number of law schools, because this would violate anti-trust laws.
“Greenbaum's proposal to erect barriers to entry in the profession and/or to new law schools would violate the antitrust laws of the United States, something the ABA cannot and will not attempt to do.”
The ABA already disregarded the Sherman Act, Dumbass!! Maybe this lying cockroach is unaware that the ABA was charged with violating antitrust laws, by the Clinton Department of “Justice” in 1995 - for setting up compensation levels and course loads for full-time “law professors.” Remember, these ABA committees are stacked with “law professors.” Do you apologists see how that could amount to a violation of antitrust law?!?!
In fact, the ABA admitted in 2006 that it violated the consent decree that it entered into with the DOJ, in 1996. The pigs disregarded six structural and compliance provisions, of the agreement. The swine paid a small $185,000 fine. Yes, that will make these bastards think twice about violating antitrust law, won’t it?!?!
ABA Considering Accrediting Foreign Law Schools:
"Lehman has long hoped to make the Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL) the first law school outside the United States to be accredited by the ABA, which would allow its graduates to take the bar exam in any U.S. state."
Keep in mind that the whore is the dean of Peking University Sewer of Transnational Law. Of course, he wants this foreign law school to receive ABA accreditation.
But That’s Not All - the Bitches Also Want to Expand the Number of States That Admit Foreign Lawyers Via LLMs:
“[T]he American Bar Association's Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has proposed specific curriculum requirements for LL.M. programs geared toward foreign-trained lawyers. Individual states that adopt the proposed model rule would let graduates of those programs sit for their bar exams. That may result in an expansion of states admitting foreign attorneys, since few states beyond New York and California currently allow the LL.M.-to-bar exam path.”
Yes, this is going to alleviate the glut of attorneys, in the U.S., right?!?!
As you can see, the ABA is a morally-bankrupt organization. It looks out for Biglaw and “law professors.” It does not give one damn what happens to debt-strapped, unemployed law grads. In contrast, the American Medical Association and the American Dental Association keep the number of medical and dental schools down. Could you imagine if these true professional bodies allowed their member schools to count physicians and dentists working as baristas or bartenders as “employed”?!
