Bucky Askew to Step Down as ABA Consultant on Legal Education

AskewHulett "Bucky" Askew (right) is stepping down as the ABA Consultant on Legal Education at the end of August after six years in the position.  From the ABA press release:

The association noted that he has been a highly effective leader, fostering positive interactions among committees of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar and restoring a collaborative working atmosphere for the section staff. He has been especially effective in strengthening relationships with the leadership of the law schools that the council accredits and serving as a calming influence during a period of uncertainly in legal education.

Barry Currier, a legal educator and higher education executive with experience in a variety of teaching and leadership roles, will join the ABA staff on June 4 as an interim consultant on legal education. Subsequently, there will be a search for Askew’s permanent successor.
