Sponsored by the McGeorge Law Review at the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.
Legal education is under the spotlight in terms of the services and value they provide their students. While the number of applications for law school has steadily increased since over the past decade, employment numbers for recent law school graduates have declined.
This symposium provided an assessment of how legal pedagogy can best prepare students for the emerging legal services market. In addition, the symposium addressed what must law schools do to provide real value to their students, who face a very uncertain future in a changing legal market and economy.
