On Legal Ed Reform, Elephants and 800-Pound Gorillas

Adult_gorilla_costume_mascotJeremy has been writing thoughtfully on these pages about curricular reform.  Those interested in the subject (and/or metaphors about elephants and 800 pound gorillas) may want to read the comment that my extraordinary colleague (and contractsprof) Jack Graves and I submitted to the ABA Task Force ont he Future of Legal Education.  Here's the link.

Hey Meredith,

While we come at things from different directions, I see a lot of common ground between your and Jack's proposals and mine. But I wonder if you have thought about the issues that I raise in part VI of my post -- relating to student preparation upon entering law school. If it is true that our students lack basic reasoning skills that used to be assumed and are also not fully formed as adults, will one 12-month period be enough to get them ready to move on to stage two of your model?
