Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers

The legal market is changing, and legal employers and members of the profession are increasingly calling on law schools to change the way they educate lawyers. Meanwhile, more information, data, and resources are being developed to help law schools and legal educators improve their programs and demonstrate greater value to students and the profession. Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers is at that intersection, bringing the profession and law schools together to solve the challenges before us.
