Question Authority, National Jurist (Jan 2013)


This essay argues that today's law students can help legal education and the legal profession by questioning the authority of today's legal educators -- albeit respectfully, which is key. As an elder of legal education myself, I can attest that none of us adequately anticipated the tumult of the current legal marketplace. Since we did not anticipate these issues and they happened on our watch, as a group we cannot be fully trusted to solve them. We can, after all, solve what we don't understand. By questioning our authority, however, we will together gather the facts needed to move legal education to a better place.
