U Iowa Law to Admit Some Without LSAT

University of Iowa College of Law will begin admitting UI undergraduate and graduate students who have at least a 3.5 GPA, are in the top 10 percent of their class and scored above the 85th percentile on another standardized test such as the SAT, GRE, etc. A recent policy change at the ABA has opened up this loophole and we expect other law schools to start following.
"Downright Predatory" Poaching

Now that we (at least briefly) have a free moment, we wanted to blog about the downright predatory poaching allegations that have been made about higher tier law schools taking transfer students from lower-ranked schools. A change in the ABA reporting requirement now forces law schools to give the breakdown on the origins of transfer students when the number of such transfers exceeds five. And this reporting has simply confirmed what everyone in the know had long suspected. Higher-ranked schools are taking a substantial number of their transfers from lower-tier rivals in their region. We believe this practice is going to continue to occur as long as US News doesn't require the transfer LSAT scores be reported.
Albany Law Moving Closer to Affiliation with U Albany
|02/10/2015 09:45:08 - (David)|
One of the last remaining independent law schools, Albany Law, appears to be moving closer to an affiliation with University of Albany. A lot has to happen, including SUNY trustee sign off, but it's a good sign as an affiliation could help the law school survive a continued drop in law school enrollment. The two schools are located only about 2 miles apart and appear to be an otherwise good fit as well.
