Abolish Tenure?

The American Bar Association Section on Legal Education has a Standards Review Committee that proposed eliminating the word "tenure" from the ABA standards covering job security and academic freedom.

The Committee also wants to abolish the a requirement that law schools provide clinical faculty members with job protections similar to those enjoyed by full-time professors 

In addition to other posts on this blog (and undoubtedly others), you can read more about faculty reaction to all of this in a new article from the National Law Journal.  Click here.
