Barry Currier Named Managing Director of Accreditation and Legal Education at ABA

CurrierABA Press Release, Barry Currier is New Managing Director of Accreditation and Legal Education at ABA:

Barry Currier was named today as the managing director of accreditation and legal education at the American Bar Association. The appointment was announced by Kent Syverud, dean of the Washington University Law School and chairperson of the Council of the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, and Jack Rives, ABA executive director.

Currier has been interim consultant on legal education since June 2012. He comes to the position of managing director with considerable experience in higher education, including having been dean of two law schools and a longtime volunteer in the accreditation process. He also has prior experience as deputy consultant to the section.

Currier’s title as managing director, rather than consultant, reflects the increasing importance and scope of the section’s regulatory role. The title change will not affect the variety of activities and programs that the section offers to support the work of law schools and their faculties and administrators.
