NALP Threatens to Sue ABA. I love when cartels fight.

From NLJ, NALP Clashes With ABA Over Jobs Data — and Hints at Taking Legal Action:

A bitter turf war has broken out between NALP and the ABA over the collection of law school postgraduate employment data, with the former hinting that it might sue the latter.

Last week, the executive committee of the of the ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar decided to require law schools to report far more detailed information about the jobs and salaries that their graduates land directly to the ABA — essentially, cutting NALP out of the reporting process. The decision represented a departure from an earlier recommendation by the section’s questionnaire committee to require the reporting of detailed statistics, but to rely on NALP to collect and sort the data. … The changes will be in effect during the next survey cycle, and will cover the class of 2011.
