Brian Tamanaha predicts, plausibly, that law schools will be subject to external scrutiny. It does sound as if they’ve earned it. I was not aware that the Law School Admissions Council has the ability to provide (or check) LSAT (and other?) data that has been being falsified by some schools. Getting the accurate data from the source seems like a no-brainer.
I would hope that a move to more verified reporting is an unalloyed good for UM, just as it most certainly would be for prospective law students everywhere. If, as seems to be the case, we’re reporting honestly, we can only gain from stamping out the trimmers.
