The Council of the American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has, for the third time since last spring, revised Standard 206 and released a final version of a proposal aimed at bolstering its existing diversity and inclusion standard.
A Feb. 10 memorandum from the ABA Standards Committee detailed the 10 public comments the proposal received between mid-November, when the last round of revisions was made, and Jan. 21, when the comment period closed. The final recommendations will go to the ABA House of Delegates (HOD) for concurrence at the HOD’s August 2022 meeting.
