ABA Approves Bar Exam Courses for Credit Toward Graduation
Last month, the ABA’s House of Delegates concurred in Resolution 112B which deleted Interpretation 302-7 of the Standards for Approval of Law Schools concerning bar examination preparation courses. Prior to this action, prep courses could not count toward law school graduation. Law schools are now free to require the successful completion of a bar course as a condition of graduation. Hat tip to Mitchell Rubinstein, Adjunct Law Prof Blog.
Here's a "wild and crazy" thought. Why not make bar passage the penultimate condition for law school graduation? [JH]

Does the deletion of interpretation 302-7 have retroactive effect? For example, what result where a law student graduated after the deletion, or has yet to graduate, and was required to successfully complete a bar exam prep course as a condition of graduation prior to the deletion of the interpretation and in violation thereof?
