ABA Committee Proposes Change To Student-to-Faculty Ratio

The National Law Journal (Karen Sloan) reports the "ABA committee reviewing the organization’s accreditation standards has voted to do away with the rule establishing a minimum student-to-faculty ratio."  Current standards require a 30-1 ratio while stating a 20-1 ratio is ideal.  The article also addresses other proposals before the committee, including proposals to change current tenure practices and to require law schools to meet higher bar passage rates.
