I could not agree more. I have been pestering the ABA for years to put its data in a more user friendly format even if it were pass word protected. It is absurd that in this day and age they are not willing to provide it electronically. When I was a dean this information was very useful in multiple ways, but required extensive time and energy on the part of my assistant to make it more useable.

I wonder how the data for the 2008 Official Guide ever got up in the first place. According to the date-stamp on the files that I have on my computer, I downloaded them in May 2007, so the files were made available at about the time of publication of the print version. The Section never added new files, but left the 2008 files up until they redesigned the Section web-site this Summer.

I'm not sure when the LSAC started the online version, but, until the 2012 edition became available, the LSAC archive had copies going back to the 2006 edition (now only back to 2007). Perhaps the Section thought that that was enough (it's not).

It might have cut into sales of the print edition, but not as much making so much of the online edition publicly available.
