Abstract

An older scientific study confirming the bias for the LSAT test. Kidder argues that after controlling for multiple variables (students with equivalent GPA and college choices), the LSAT still culturally biased and created a barrier for law school. The reliance on LSAT scores especially with the focus on racially blind admissions procedures is detrimental to minority students.
