In 1992, ASHA’s Legislative Council (LC) passed LC 4–92. Even though this resolution has been discussed and debated, I thought it worthwhile to review its contents. Essentially, this legislation supports the doctorate as the entry level degree for audiology, the development of the professional doctorate degree, the AuD as an appropriate descriptor of the professional doctoral degree, and the development of clinical doctoral programs. In addition, it encourages the Council on Professional Standards to petition the Council on Post-Secondary Accreditation for authority to accredit doctoral programs, and to develop and disseminate standards so that individuals with professional or clinical doctorates are eligible for the CCC-A. Finally, it asked the Executive Board (EB) to report to LC in 1993 as to the feasibility and impact of the professional doctorate.
