Post-Conference Report

The Report on the 2012 Conference aims to provide a breakdown of the discussions and exchanges that took place at the Conference and a snapshot of the shared ideas and goals presented about reforming legal education. We hope that the Report will spur discussion and implementation of the materials and methods therein, and help foster further law school dialogue, classroom innovation, and collaboration among our Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers Consortium and all those invested in legal education reform.
