ABA President-elect Hilarie Bass has submitted this 4-page memorandum requesting that the ABA Board of Governors create a new "Commission on the Future of Legal Education" to assume all of the non-accreditation activities of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar. The accreditation activities would remain the responsibility of a renamed "ABA Section on Accreditation." The Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar has submitted this 4-page memorandum detailing its "concerns" regarding President-elect Bass's proposal.
The matter is on the agenda of the Board's February 3-4 meeting at the ABA Midyear Meeting in Miami.
