ABA responds to Senator Grassley (via WSJ)

"ABA to Senator Grassley: We Share Your Concerns about Law Schools"
http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2011/07/21/aba ... w-schools/
The gist of the ABA’s response, to our eyes, is: Don’t worry, we’re paying close enough attention to law schools. Given the hue and cry about law schools in recent years, we’re guessing some may not find this response satisfactory.

The TLS thread covering the letter Grassley sent to the ABA can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=160470

Personally, I am convinced that no long-term, sustainable solution can be reached regarding the woes afflicting the labor market for lawyers UNLESS the ABA is stripped from its law school accreditation and regulatory powers. The ABA simply refuses to do anything.
