Scholarship and Tenure Standards

The Law School Innovation Blog has a new posting on the anguish of tenure standards and the expectations to produce scholarship.

Mark Osler writes that he sees three groups involved in the process: the teaching faculty, the deans/department chairs, and upper administration (provost/president).  Professor Osler says that as long as these three groups have the same expectations for scholarship, tenure considerations seem to go relatively smoothly.  Trouble arises when these three groups do not share common expectations.
