If you were following the American Bar Association’s deliberations on revising law school accreditation rules this spring and summer, you might have concluded that the “faculty tenure requirement” was all that was being discussed. Unsurprisingly, many law professors opposed the relatively mild proposed changes the ABA’s Standards Review Committee offered, and the idea was ultimately scrapped in June. The revisions that did pass through the committee and received final approval by the ABA House of Delegates in August, however, deserve more elaboration because of their potential for reducing waste by law schools, which might benefit students. Plus, some of the changes have gone underreported generally.
