Hertz is new chair of ABA section

Professor Randy Hertz, director of the Law School's Clinical and Advocacy Programs, has been named chair of the American Bar Association's Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.

As part of the Section's Outcome Measures Committee, Hertz worked with other legal experts to create a final report, just completed, that recommends revising the ABA's current law school accreditation standards to reduce their focus on input measures (how a law school is investing its resources) and place greater emphasis on outcome measures (how successfully a law school has imparted knowledge to and enhanced the capacities of its students).
