The American Law Deans Association is seeking to strip the American Bar Association of its power to determine which positions at their schools should be tenured. "It doesn't mean that they should all drop tenure. It means law schools should be able to do what they want," said Saul Levmore, president of ALDA and dean of the University of Chicago Law School. The Clinical Legal Education Association supports the ABA, contending that its requirements help keep creative or controversial programs intact.
