ABA Task Force on the Future of Legal Education Solicits Comments on Economics and Delivery of Legal Education
The ABA Task Force on the Future of Legal Education Subcommittee on the Costs and Economics of Legal Education seeks comments on what problems are caused or promoted by the costs of a legal education and what plans or actions can be undertaken in the next five years to remedy them. The Subcommittee on the Delivery of Legal Education and Its Regulation is doing the same with respect to what the functions and goals of U.S. law schools are or should be over the next 25 years and how those functions and goals should affect the missions of individual law schools; the nature and demographics of the students they serve; and the costs and availability of legal services.
Both subcommittees are deliberating over questions listed here. Responses can be sent to Art Garwin, the deputy director of the Center for Professional Responsibility at art.garwin(at)americanbar.org.
