Over on TaxProf Blog, Paul Caron has an interesting post on Denis Binder's paper The Changing Paradigm in Public Legal Education. Binder concludes in part:
Public law schools face major challenges in shifting from a low tuition, heavily state supported model to one of high tuition with variable state support. The challenges can best be viewed as risks, which if not properly handled, will result in long term damage to public legal education. If the public law schools increasingly mirror their private counter-parts, their ethos, their basis for existence, as a public institution will cease.
