Dean Renews Call for Charter Law Schools

Following up on my previous post:  Above the Law:  Why the ABA Is Resistant to Change, by David Yellen (Dean, Loyola-Chicago):

The ABA should also consider drawing from the charter school experience. Charter schools receive significant relief from regulatory rules in exchange for being closely evaluated based upon a set of agreed-upon goals. The Section should consider allowing a small number of existing or newly created schools to propose a detailed plan for operating a quality law school without being governed by many of the more onerous Standards. The success or failure of these schools could be monitored and studied, and sensible reforms to the Standards could emerge.

Interesting idea.

But the data shows that Charter Schools usually have below average performance and don't cost any less.
