Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers will be holding its second annual conference today through Saturday in Denver. The theme of this year's conference is Connecting the Academy and Profession. The conference will focus on three questions:
- What Core Competencies Do Entry Level Lawyers Need?
- What Structural and Curricular Changes Ensure Law Grads Have the Necessary Core Competencies?
- How Can Law School Accreditation and Bar Admissions Standards Facilitate Innovation in Legal Education?
"The purpose of Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers is to encourage and facilitate innovation in legal education in order to train new lawyers to the highest standards of competence and professionalism."
"Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers partners with a consortium of law schools committed to innovation in the spirit of the Carnegie Report. Each member of the Consortium makes an annual contribution to the initiative, to support the mission and goals of Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers."
