Weekly Legal Education Roundup

Comment:  Heather M. Field (UC-Hastings), A Tax Professor's Guide to Formative Assessment.  This is a great article on formative assessment.  Not only should only it be read by tax professors, but by anyone who wants to use formative assessment in their classes.

Inside Higher Education reported this week that as part of university cutbacks at the University of Tulsa the law school will end its MLS and LLM programs. As so very many law schools started such cynical cash grabs during the law school crisis to (attempt to) make up for falling JD revenue, I mean enrollment, it's interesting to me that Tulsa is cutting those very programs. An outlier or a harbinger of things to come?

Also the trustees at the University of Alabama voted this afternoon [Friday] to return megadonor Culverhouse's $26.5 million because he said Alabama's anti-abortion law was bad and that made them need a safe space or something. Never mind that a cursory look at their enrollment, % and amount of tuition discounting, 2007 law school addition, and level faculty headcount would indicate that the law school is running in the red.
