A friend on my faculty alerted me to this article, Post Tenure Review as If It Mattered, by Jayne B. Barnard. I do not agree with some portions of it but the importance of its subject matter and the common sense appeal of many of its proposals should not be overlooked. On MoneyLaw we write about hiring, tenure decisions, rankings and, to some extent ideals. There is not much on post tenure review. If I were to identify one area in which law school shareholder interests are given short shrift, post tenure review would be it. Professor Barnard gets into the nitty-gritty of what it would mean to have meaningful post tenure review.
