ABA Launches New Website for Prospective Law Students


Thinking about attending law school?

Make sure you check out www.abarequireddisclosures.org. Launched last month, the new website is the American Bar Association’s attempt to provide prospective law students a better mechanism to be informed consumers when applying to and selecting a law school

While the ABA requires law schools to publicly disclose certain information on their own websites under Standard 509, the compilation of this information on a single website now allows individuals to easily search and sort the data, allowing for school-by-school comparisons and analysis. The ability to do so should prove to be extremely useful to law school applicants.

Under Standard 509, law schools are required to post the following information on their websites: admissions data; tuition and fees, living costs, and financial aid; conditional scholarships; enrollment data, including academic, transfer, and other attrition; numbers of full-time and part-time faculty, professional librarians, and administrators; class sizes for first-year and upper-class courses; number of seminar, clinical and co-curricular offerings; employment outcomes; and bar passage data. This information is now searchable and sortable on www.abarequireddisclosures.org.
