Weekly Legal Education Roundup

Post of the Week: Robert Kuehn (Associate Dean for Clinical Education, Washington University), Do Law Schools Adequately Prepare Students For Practice? Surveys Say . . . No!.  This article shows the progress, or more accurately the lack of progress, that law schools have made since the Carnegie Report and Best Practices.

It has now been almost ten years since the publications of the Carnegie Report and Best Practices for Legal Education.  Both these reports called for significant changes in legal education.  Yet the details of Professor Kuehn's post show that law schools still have a long way to go in providing their students with the best education.  Many are working hard to reform legal education, but everyone in legal education must do so if we are to turn out the lawyers needed for the 21st Century.
