Bloomberg reports that the Law Schools at SUNY Buffalo and the University of Iowa are soon going to accept students who have not taken the LSAT. This move is based on recent changes to ABA accreditation standards that allow Law Schools to admit up to 10% of their students without requiring them to take the LSAT. The provisos for the students in this 10% are that they were at the top of their college class and scored highly on the the SAT and ACT or on the GRE or GMAT graduate school exams. Standard 503 of the ABA Guidelines states in part that:
"(a) It is not a violation of this Standard for a law school to admit no more than 10% of an entering class without requiring the LSAT from: (1) Students in an undergraduate program of the same institution as the J.D. program; and/or (2) Students seeking the J.D. degree in combination with a degree in a different discipline."

The Ohio Supreme Court has significantly expanded the search capabilities of its Opinions & Announcements page. These new enhancements include allowing users "to search for specific topics or issues such as mandamus actions or attorney discipline matters or expedited election cases. Other new features will enable users to search court decisions by county, case number, and author. Many of these categories were available for display by columns on the old Opinions & Announcements page, but users could not search for them and filter out other information."
Attorneys will also be able to search for cases using a book citation format which includes the number of the bound volume containing the published opinion and its page number in the bound volume.
