ABA votes to retain tenure (good) and require 6 hours of experiential learning of ALL students (bad)

Blog Emperor Caron has the details.  Fortunately, the insane proposal for 15 hours of so-called "experiential" learning was defeated.

ADDENDUM:  As a couple of readers noted, I have in the past expressed the view that tenure need not be an accreditation requirement, which is still my view.  But given some of the administrative mischief afoot, and some of the reasons given for opposing tenure, I am happy to see the ABA leave it alone for now.
