The ABA does not have a lot of direct authority but they can be very influential. Unfortunately, they have missed the boat on multi jurisdictional practice, the internet, online schools etc. They are the status quo so don't expect much of any use to come from them. The good news is that their main backers, big law, will be as obsolete as the Hummer and TWA in a another decade or so as nimbler forms of obtaining legal services take over.
