We should not try to cover up some of the problems caused by the pandemic.
– William Adams, executive director of ABA Accreditation and Legal Education, in comments made during a recent meeting of the ABA Council on a request from the deans of law schools in New York, New Jersey and California, the final deadline for the Employment dates for graduates to be set from March to June due to the upheavals caused by the pandemic. As Adams further explained, many law schools have acceptance deadlines falling between April and early summer, and postponing the data deadline would not help law school consumers make their decisions before the law. According to the ABA Journal, Adams noted that the publication of job statistics will include a statement stating that the pandemic has affected both the number of bars and employment numbers.
