American Bar Association considers anti-bias training mandate for law schools

The American Bar Association is considering changes to its rules for approved law schools, including required anti-bias training and a mandatory acknowledgment of “gender identity.”

An April 30 memo from the ABA’s Standards Committee recommends several updates to the group’s “Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools.”

Namely, the document suggests changing Standard 303 to include “a new section requiring law schools to provide training and education on bias, cross-cultural competency, and racism.” Such programs would have to occur “at the start of the program of legal education” and “at least once again before graduation.”

Among other suggestions, the document recommends “orientation sessions for incoming students on bias, cross-cultural competency, and racism,” “courses on racism and bias in the law,” or “guest lectures or trainings by experts in the areas of bias, cross-cultural competency, and racism” to comply with the new mandate.

The document also recommends adding “gender identity” to nondiscrimination statements throughout the Standards.

For instance, the committee recommends changing Interpretation 206-1 to read that “gender identity or expression” and “sexual orientation” in admissions or employment decisions “is not a justification for a school’s noncompliance with Standard 206,” which mandates that a law school should provide an environment that is “inclusive and equitable.”

Why do conservative states allow a one sided political organization to act as gatekeepers to the practice of law? Since the ABA acts as any Center for Liberal White Noise, treat them as just another think tank.
