From the Publisher"This volume, under the presidency of Lee Shulman, is intendedprimarily to foster appreciation for what legal education does atits best. We want to encourage more informed scholarship andimaginative dialogue about teaching and learning for the law at allorganizational levels: in individual law schools, in the academicassociations, in the profession itself. We also believe ourfindings will be of interest within the academy beyond theprofessional schools, as well as among that public concerned withhigher education and the promotion of professionalexcellence."
—From the Introduction
"Educating Lawyers is no doubt the best work on theanalysis and reform of legal education that I have ever read. Thereis a call for deep changes in the way law is taught, and I believethat it will be a landmark in the history of legaleducation."
—Bryant G. Garth, dean and professor of law, Southwestern LawSchool and former director of the American Bar Foundation
"Educating Lawyers succeeds admirably in describing theeducational programs at virtually every American law school. Thecall for the integration of the three apprenticeships seems to meexactly what is needed to make legal education more 'professional,'to prepare law students better for the practice of law, and toaddress societal expectations of lawyers."
—Stephen Wizner, dean of faculty, William O. Douglas ClinicalProfessor of Law, Yale Law School
