This weekend, the Standards Review Committee (SRC) for the American Bar Association Section on Legal Education considered dramatic changes to law school accreditation standards that relate to tenure requriements: "security of position" for clinic professors, and "academic freedom" for legal writing professors.
Just about every full-time legal writing professor’s position falls somewhere under the standards that the SRC is considering eliminating. For links to the details – including relevant SRC materials and materials submitted to them by many in legal education -- click over to the Tax Prof Blog.That blog post also notes that the Clinical Legal Education Association accuses the SRC of sandbagging the standards review process by posting some material only three days before its meeting in Chicago.
