Law School Law Firm

To Place Graduates, Law Schools Are Opening Firms is an interesting March 7, 2013 New York Times article. Because the job market is so difficult for newly minted lawyers, some schools are formering law firms paying their former students little or no pay. 

Is this a good idea? Of course it is. But, the full-time doctrinal faculty will not be appearing in those clincs. Why? Because most do not know how to practice law. Law school needs to change and start hiring faculty that knows how to practice law.
