Editorial on Practice-Ready Lawyers

As a follow-up to my last post on the lack of engagement by third-year law students, I'd like to post the link to an editorial published in the National Law Journal. Entitled "Make It Practice-Oriented," the editorial is written by Stephen J. Friedman, Dean of the Pace University School of Law. Dean Friedman discusses transforming legal education to keep pace with the dramatic changes taking place in the legal profession; he also discusses ways to make the third year of law school meaningful so that students will take it seriously.
