          It's Time to Rethink Law School

          "There are two schools of thought about legal education." Viewpoint by Chancellor & Dean Frank H. Wu for the Daily Journal.

          "There are two schools of thought about legal education."

          There are two schools of thought about legal education.

          One insists that law schools are fundamentally fine. They face only a momentary lull in demand. They will recover so long as they continue to do as they have done. Another contends that the educational program leading into legal practice is fundamentally flawed. It needs reform even if the marketplace improves. The recent economic crisis exposed problems that always had been there.

          I count myself among those who embrace the latter view. Adaptation is mandatory, not optional. But it already is underway, in need of encouragement.
