Academic Freedom and Academic duty
Association of American Law Schools
The university is under attack from all sides. Parents and students resent the escalating costs of education and wonder where the money is being spent. Aspiring scholars feel betrayed by an institution that prepares them for nonexistent jobs. Critics on the right condemn teachers who negelect the canon while critics on the left condemn the creeping corporatism on campus. Politicians seek greater control over the conduct of research and add new conditions to the use of government funds. Academics themselves are increasingly uneasy in an environment that fosters competition, discourages co-operation and has made publish or perish a condition of survival.
