Russell Weaver & David Partlett, Teaching Remedies as a Capstone Course
"The debate about the divide between the legal academy and the legal profession is perennial and, in times of economic stress, of increasing urgency. Historically, law school critics have portrayed law professors as living their lives, and teaching their classes, from “ivory towers” that are divorced from the day-to-day realities of law practice. While law professors might teach students how to read cases and analyze precedent, so the critique went, they did little to teach students how to function like practicing lawyers."
