Suggested Revenue and Expenditure Reforms Could Completely Change the Landscape of the Legal Academy
1. Revenues: Restrict the flow of federal tuition loan dollars into the legal academy.
2. Expenditures: Strip away the ABA requirements that mandate spending money to support faculty scholarship.
Do note, that the second option could mean that the the ABA would no longer require maintaining a substantial academic law library collection.
