Legal Education Analysis & Reform Network Outlines Initial Projects

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s report entitled Educating Lawyers: Preparation for the Profession of Law has generated enough interest in the legal academy that the Foundation working with Stanford Law School has assembled a group of legal educators to engage in further efforts to reform legal education. The project has been named LEARN, which stands for Legal Education Analysis and Reform Network and ten law schools are represented at this phase of LEARN’s development: CUNY, Dayton, Georgetown, Harvard, Indiana-Bloomington, New Mexico, NYU, Southwestern, Stanford, and Vanderbilt. Recently LEARN released an outline of the initial projects it plans to launch.
