ABA Journal, Legal Ed Asks For Comment As They Consider Revising Teach-Out Plans and Accreditation Rules:
The American Bar Association’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar is considering revisions for rules and standards that apply to ABA-accredited law schools, including a proposal that would change the existing direction for teach-out plans.
Notice and comment on the proposals is ongoing, and the section has scheduled a public hearing Aug. 21 at 1 pm, at the Park Hyatt Chicago. According to the June 17 memo posted online, written comments about the suggested changes should be sent to Jeffrey Lewis, chair of the section’s council and a law professor at Saint Louis University. Requests to speak at the hearing should be made by July 19.
