Strange doings by the ABA

As outlined in this Taxprof post, there has been an online debate about a new standard from the American Bar Association that appears to urge law schools to violate the law, as it says: "The requirement of a constitutional provision or statute that purports to prohibit consideration of gender, race, ethnicity or national origin in admissions or employment decisions is not a justification for a school’s non-compliance with Standard 211."

This seems like a strange thing for a bar association to be doing. The Instapundit himself said: "Legal consequences aside, though, I think the ABA is in danger of further marginalizing itself, accelerating its move from an umbrella legal-profession organization to just another political interest group."
