MOVING TO THE FRONT from February 4: Based on feedback about the proposed new standards, Professor Caron has revised his presentation of the data and the schools that might be affected.
Blog Emperor Caron has the details.
UPDATE: Comments at Caron's site by Mark Scarberry and Eric Mitnick make clear that the risk of losing accreditation under the new standard is not as great as Caron's chart makes it appear, because the new ABA standard excludes those retaking the bar exam, while Caron's chart includes them.
ANOTHER UPDATE: More clarifications about the proposed standards and their import here. The standards, of course, appear to be the product of right-wing pressure on the ABA from the Bush Education Department, which has oversight of the ABA's authority to act as an accreditation agency for law schools.
