Academic Elitism - William Henderson in the ABA Journal

The July, 2012 issue of the ABA Journal has a great cover story, "The Pedigree Problem" by William D. Henderson and Rachel m. Zahorsky. Henderson, a professor at Indiana University, has been an interesting thinker about the future of legal education. Here, he is talking about how brand bias and elitism in legal hiring is choking off innovation and change in the legal academy. It's a great read!

I found this article to be totally disheartening. It's so hard to change perceptions about the quality of a particular institution, and so unfair to judge students by the school they attended. There are bright, motivated students at lower-ranked schools, and some real duds at so-called elite schools.
