Rethinking law schools

March 21, 2013

Guests: Brian Tamanaha, Lawrence Mitchell

Law schools are in trouble. Applications are at a 30-year low and rising tuitions have led to high student debt.  A weak job market has meant that many graduates can’t find a good job to make payments on those loans.  All this has spurred a debate about what law school should be, and possible ways to reform it. Today, rethinking law school.  First, guest host, Tracey Matisak, talks with Washington University law professor, BRIAN TAMANAHA, about his book, “Failing Law Schools.” Then LAWRENCE MITCHELL, Dean of Case Western Reserve Law School, gives us a different perspective on the value of a legal education.
