weakening the ABA accreditation standards

The ABA is considering changing the ABA law school accreditation standards, essentially to no longer require any particular way of calculating faculty/student ratios or any particular ratios to shoot for.  You can see written comments about this proposed change -- from various legal education organizations, deans, and professors -- by clicking on:
If you are attending the AALS annual meeting, you can attend the Standards Review Committee's hearing, to listen (which is always informative) and/or have your own say.  According to the ABA's website, the public hearing is at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront on January 9th, from 3:15 - 5:00 p.m.  Usually the committee posts obvious signs to their meeting room in the hotel lobby.
