Law school across the country are adopting real-world, experiential curricula to address an increasingly competitive and shrinking job market.
“Law students arguing practice motions to faux judges is nothing new, especially in an advanced legal research and writing class such as Mauerman’s. But her class – now know as Lawyering Skills – is part of a shift in Whittier’s curriculum meant to blend training in real-world practice activities with ordinary substantive law. When fully implemented a year from now, 29 out of 59 required class units will include some ‘experiential learning,’ the school says.”
