Steeped in books and theory, the traditional curriculum at most law schools hasn’t changed in decades. But the tighter job market is bringing changes – albeit a bit slowly. Law firms, businesses, and the clients they serve, are demanding that more be done by law schools to train and prepare properly future lawyers while they are still in school. What does this mean if you are a prospective law student? What should you be looking for to get the most innovative, practical and relevant law school experience? We talk with law school deans, law professors and those on the front lines of developing new paths in law school to help bridge the gap from law school to law practice.
