The present and future of legal education

Larry Ribstein —  22 March 2011

At the Glom the Masters are discussing “proposed changes to accreditation standards” and possibly also “the reported decline in law school applications and talk of the law school bubble’s bursting.” 

This discussion focuses on the present of legal education.  You might want to also look at my recent papers discussing possible futures of legal education (possibly not constrained by accreditation), and of the “legal profession” (aka the legal information industry).
