From The AmLaw Daily: "Welcome to the Future: Are Law Schools 'Beached'?"
"Welcome to the Future: Are Law Schools 'Beached'?" from Paul Lippe writing for The AmLaw Daily. If you're in the legal profession, you need to read this article. Not just because it further drives home the message that the current model is not working for clients, precisely those the system should be designed to benefit (United Technologies refuses to pay for first- and second-year associate time). Not just because it links the shortcomings of the current legal education system with other significant changes going on in the profession (free legal research, anyone?). Not just because it provides a useful perspective on the problems, but because it begins to look at solutions, at next steps, at effecting change, instead of merely lamenting the broken system.
