Rodriguez: Law Schools Are Still In Denial About Fall 2020

Following up on Saturday's post:  Dan Rodriguez (Northwestern), Law Schools Still in Denial:

I predicted several weeks ago that law schools committed to some jury-rigged hybrid schemes would retreat from that as the summer continued, and as more evidence accumulated both of the folly of pursuing in-residence learning and also as faculty became more adept at remote/online learning modalities.  It appears I was wrong.  Through some combination of hubris and predicament (and maybe the lack of autonomy in bureaucratic university structures), most law schools are plowing ahead with these ventures.

"(and maybe the lack of autonomy in bureaucratic university structures)".

Duh, you *think*??? I see why law professors get paid the big bucks for their keen analytical minds. My university is scheduled to reopen in a hybrid format. Therefore, the law school where I work will do so, as well. Choice factor here: Zero.
