ABA Council Changes Course

The ABA Council decided to send out for comment a proposal to increase the requirement for clinics, simulations or externships to 15 credits.  This is a big surprise of those of us following the ABA Council’s deliberations of the changes to its standards regarding the Program of Legal Education.  Over the summer, the decision was made to circulate for comment a proposal requiring 6 credits.

  1. Brian Leiter has used a misrepresntation of the proposal to attack clinical teachers on his law school blog. I discuss this in full on the Legal Skills Prof Blog at http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/legal_skills/2013/12/brian-leiter-misrepresents-proposal-by-aba-section-on-legal-education.html.
