The council of the American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar voted Friday to approve a proposed amendment to Standard 503 that would remove the standardized admissions test requirement for ABA-accredited law schools.

If approved by the HOD, the amendment would be implemented in fall 2025. The next HOD meeting is scheduled for Feb. 6.
