At some point in their deanships, most law school deans will host a sabbatical site inspection of their law school by the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). Virtually all deans also will have the opportunity to serve as a representative of the ABA or AALS on a team inspecting another law school. In this article I will discuss these site visits from the dean's perspective.
