Cross-Posted from TaxProf:
A quick summary: An ABA Task Force focused on the future of legal education has been studying the crisis featuring legal education and have released a "working paper" that so far serve to introduce their preliminary findings, with the finished product and recommendations to be made a few months from now.
As AboveTheLaw noted, "Essentially, the document says, 'Wow, the scam blogs were totally right.'" http://abovethelaw.com/2013/08/aba-finally-states-the-problem-now-will-they-do-anything-about-it/
For instance, the working paper describes the perverse "Reverse Robin Hood" policy surrounding "merit" scholarships perfectly on page one (I'd copy and paste it but the format isn't conducive to that).
Here is the link to the working paper. Have a good weekend everybody!
