Today's noteworthy events included a full-day meeting on the US News ratings. Speakers shared a variety of ideas and views, including the impact on student-body diversity if schools overly rely on LSAT scores and the idea of having "teaching law schools" and "teaching law firms" (similar to teaching hospitals). The evening was filled with a variety of receptions hosted by law schools, publishers, etc. I can report that Seattle U and Albany had enjoyable receptions with friendly faculty members and great food.
