My blogging colleague Scott Fruehwald mentioned a few days ago Professor Jerry Organ's essay published as part of the New York Times "Room for Debate" column on the credentials of incoming law students in light of the hefty drop in enrollments. It's a topic of great interest to many of our readers so I'm providing links to all the essays that were part of the column.
The American Bar Association Should Create a More Meaningful Bar Exam by Professor Deborah Jones Merritt (Ohio State).
Law Schools Need to Better Prepare Their Students by Professor Linda Sheryl Greene (Wisconsin).
Incoming Law Students Have Weaker Exam Credentials by Professor Jerry Organ (St. Thomas).
The Bar Exam Is Not the Best Test of a Good Lawyer by Dean Nicholas Allard (Brooklyn).
A Shrinking Pool, But Committed Lawyers by Diane M. Downs (Chief Recruiting Officer at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP).
