Law schools are working to reorient themselves

One of the real mysteries of American life is how, on the one hand, large-firm hot-shots can command $500+ per hour in legal fees, while on the other hand, thousands of lawyers are unemployed or under-employed AND many people in need of good legal counsel go unserved.

I have long contended that a law school education is the best training a mind can have, and that the nation needs more, not fewer lawyers.

But the current construct --- inflated tuition rates and too little career planning --- has to change.
