ABA Council Approves Addition of Bias, Cross-Cultural Competency and Racism Training Requirement to Law School Accreditation Standards

From the ABA Journal:

"The council on Friday did approve other proposed standards revisions, which are expected to go to the ABA House of Delegates for approval at the midyear meeting in February. They include: . . .

"Adding a new requirement that law schools provide education about bias, cross-cultural competency and racism to Standard 303, which focuses on curriculum. The offerings should take place at the start of a student’s legal education program and at least once more before graduation."

As has been noted on this blog, there has been a great deal of opposition to this proposal, including from prominent law professors. (here, here, here, here)

Does any other higher education accreditation agency mandate ideological training?
