Lead story: Another important study of legal education appeared last month: Law School Transparency's 2025 Vision.  Excerpt: "When law schools price potential contributors out of the profession, they jeopardize the pipeline of students who want and can afford to protect the rule of law, deliver quality legal services, and narrow the justice gap. Myriad factors stand between good intentions and meaningful reform, but more accessible, affordable, and innovative law schools can become the new normal if we devote additional energy to changing the structural barriers that hold schools back."

Lead story: The ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Education has issued a new report on the future of legal education: Principles For Legal Education and Licensure in the 21st Century: Principles and Commentary.   This report is probably the most important statement on Legal Education since the "Carnegie Report" and "Best Practices" appeared in 2007.  It contains a bold plan, which urges legal education reform now.

The report states, "There is positive change already underway; passionate innovators in every sector of legal education and licensure strive for progress every day. To build on that work, we need systemic change—and we need it now."  It continues, ""The Commission believes that systemic change is possible. The Foundational and Operational Principles provide a platform for structured change. Individuals and institutions can use these Principles to assess current practices and fashion new ones."  The plan concludes, "Although continued study is critical, we must move forward purposefully with aligned, transparent, and meaningful change. It is past time to shift collectively from study into action."

In other words, the future of legal education is now.
