    Since the publication of the 2015 best practices and model recommendations, what have we learned? Our goal for this discussion is to test whether there is an appetite for an updated set of best practice standards and model rules. Discussion points may include: How should the ABA and regional accreditors review online law classes? How should the accreditation consider non-JD online offerings? Some law schools report status differences between faculty who teach online and residential classes. How should this status difference be approached? Some law schools heavily use adjuncts to teach online law classes. Is this a problem?
