I posted earlier on Law School Transparency's new program in which it will provide a "certification" to law schools that meet the ABA's standards and other "best practices" for disclosure of their graduates' employment data.

oh, sorry, “certification” by LST that a law school is meeting the
requirements of ABA Standard 509 regarding disclosures to students about
financial aid and employment outcomes.
