The Council of the American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has, for the second time this year, released a revised version of a proposal aimed at bolstering its existing diversity and inclusion standard.

The council met both virtually and in person in San Francisco on Nov. 19 and approved preliminary revisions to Standard 206 of the ABA Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools. The proposal, initially released for public comment in May, would require schools to take “effective actions that lead to progress,” rather than the “concrete actions” the existing standard requires.
