The American Bar Association’s decision to end the Law School Admissions Test in order to increase racial diversity will mean more Black and Hispanic students (“Law Schools Without LSATs,” The Wall Street Journal, Nov. 25). But at what price? It is further evidence that merit in any form is anathema.
I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the ABA soon votes to urge states to eliminate their bar exams for the same reason. We are undermining whatever standards still exist in this country in the professions. Yes, we’ll get racial diversity, but public confidence will be rightly destroyed.
