A group composed of 110 law deans is seeking to strip the American Bar Association of its power to determine which positions at their schools should be tenured.

The American Law Deans Association has submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Education calling for the removal of the American Bar Association’s authority to control tenured positions among law professors, clinicians, library directors, writing instructors and deans themselves. ALDA has also hired a Washington law firm to represent it at a hearing before the Education Department in June.
