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.
