National Law Journal: New Blog Airs Law Schools' Laundry:
Deans Aim for Tough Look at Legal Education:
A trio of deans this month launched the first group blog written specifically by law school deans, with the intention of driving the national conversation about legal education [Law Deans on Legal Education Blog].
Weary of keeping quiet as critics in the media and online opine on law schools’ problems, the three deans want the blog to be a must-read among their peers, faculty and students on topics ranging from student debt and rising costs to accreditation and declining applications. ... [T]he new blog reflects a growing realization among some law school deans that they need to more actively help frame how the public views legal education.
