This statement from Senator Grassley is sort of surprising: "Has the ABA taken any steps to make these panels more representative of the legal profession as a whole in order to minimize the appearance of a conflict of interest in favor or accrediting more law schools to create more jobs in academia?" I might have thought that having too many academics on accreditation committees would lead to fewer schools receiving ABA accreditation. Because I would think they'd be trying to protect their so-called monopoly. I think at this point we can't even reliably predict what would be the position of academics' self-interest.
