Merritt on Law School Applications, Layered Legal Education

Law School Cafe_Page_1Interesting recent legal education posts by Deborah Jones Merritt (Ohio State) on Law School Cafe:

  • Support for Layered Legal Education (Nov. 30, 2013):  "Since writing about multi-tiered legal education, including an undergraduate component, I have discovered several other scholars and practice experts with similar ideas. Here is a round up of proposals related to “layered” legal education with an undergraduate component. Please add to the collection by sending links to similar proposals."
  • Applicants and Aspirations (Dec. 2, 2013)
  • Three Adaptations to Attract Applicants (Dec. 4, 2013): "I wrote earlier this week about three forces that will continue to dampen law school applications, even if overall employment rates improve. Those forces are (1) the greater transparency of job outcomes, (2) the changed composition of those jobs, and (3) the narrowing of entry-level career choices. These trends may have little impact on the fortunes of a few top-ranked schools, but I think other law schools would be wise to consider them. Here are three suggestions for responding to these forces."
