The Future of Legal Education

Excellent, thought provoking article (PDF) from New York Law School Dean Richard Matasar in the New York State Bar Journal. Dean Matasar provides a concise account of the economics of legal education and legal employment currently and into the future.  I strongly recommend it for all who are weighing a career in law (that’s all of you, right?).

Also worth reading is Washington University School of Law Prof. Brian Tamanaha‘s commentary on Dean Matasar’s article.  Prof. Tamanaha points out just how well positioned Dean Matasar is to know about the dark side of the current economics of law.
