My sincere thanks to Al, Dan, and the other Faculty Lounge regulars for the opportunity to guest blog for awhile. I’ve been a daily follower of the Lounge for many years, and I look forward to sharing some posts of my own.
Among other topics, I intend to reflect upon the current state of faculty governance at ABA-approved law schools. In particular, I will address several recent and highly disturbing situations involving university administrators who have usurped the role of a law faculty in some significant respect (or in many such respects) and/or have improperly appropriated assets of a law school. I will also offer thoughts as to how law faculties and the ABA Section on Legal Education should respond when actions of university administrators suggest a lack of concern with the best interests of the law school.
It’s great to be in the Lounge!
