National Law Journal, Law School Review: A Forum on Legal Education:
Thanks panelists for your excellent posts so far, and thanks to the commentors. ... I'd like to play moderator here for a moment and pose a couple of questions to our panelists and readers.
- Bill Henderson suggests that law schools need to retool their curricula. If this is true, what, specifically, should the next generation of law schools look like?
- Law graduate debt and employment opportunities seem to be driving the debate over how law schools are performing right now. What role should law schools play in reducing graduate debt loads? How should they improve the job prospects for new graduates?
