The ABA, that has been working on changes to its law school accreditation standards for months, has announced, via the ABA Journal's site, that it will make some possibly controversial changes to how it measures a law school's fitness for accreditation.
According to the article, the ABA will start measuring a law school's "outcome" rather than its "input." Meaning, major factors that will be required for accreditation will relate more to what a law student gets out of their experience at a school than they will to what a law school puts into it. Examples of the latter are faculty and campus size, an example of the former is bar passage rates.
Don't expect a massive overhaul anytime soon, though. The last accreditation standards review process took three years, from 2003 to 2006.
