Purpose & Scope

The Task Force formerly known as Law Schools and Legal Education Task Force shall be discontinued and a new task force entitled “Task Force on Legal Education and Admission to the Bar” is herein appointed. This task force shall undertake a comprehensive evaluation of relevant current issues related to legal education and admission to the bar.

 

This may include, but is not limited to, the following: an analysis of data related to the Alabama bar examination; a comparison of the overall success of accredited and non-accredited law schools; an analysis of the Rules Governing Admission to the Alabama State Bar; a review of areas of concern with respect to the character and fitness of law student registrants and applicants for admission; and an analysis of employment statistics for graduates of Alabama law schools.

 

The task force shall review the June 2, 2017 Report of the Task Force on Law Schools and Legal Education, which was appointed on September 13, 2016. The task force shall submit its own written report of findings and recommendations no later than June 1, 2018. This report shall be made to the president of the Alabama State Bar, with copy to the chair of the Alabama Board of Bar Examiners.

 

No later than May 1, 2018, the task force shall determine if it will recommend the task force be a permanent standing committee of the Bar, remain as a task force for another year, or neither.

 

The task force shall elect from its membership a secretary who shall be responsible for a written record of all its actions. The secretary shall keep minutes of all meetings of the task force and a copy of the original of the minutes shall be filed with the Alabama State Bar Department of External Relations after each meeting or upon request.

 

The task force shall meet at the call of the chair and/or the vice-chair. The Alabama State Bar, through its designated staff liaison, will assist the task force in carrying out its purpose.
