Abstract

This article examines two obstacles that African-Americans currently face in obtaining admission to law school. The first is law school admissions practices that have a disparate impact on minority students and appear to be driven by competitive, economic motives. And the second is law school accreditation practices that have a disparate impact on minority students without valid, reliable, and objective evidence establishing that these practices have a legitimate educational purpose.
