An initial set of possible projects for Future Law Works and others focused on the future of law and legal education emerged from the Law’s Futures roundtable held at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California in September 2018.
Those projects are:
Collecting, documenting, and advancing a set of best practices for institutional and disciplinary collaboration among law programs and other college and university-based academic programs, from engineering to business to public health to social work, and beyond.
Exploring and advancing new and different roles for professional licensure.
Rebuilding the economic logic of legal education as part of a rebuilt legal services industry.
Institutionalizing deep reflection and experimentation on and in law via something akin to a “Xerox PARC,” “Skunk Works,” or “Bell Labs”-style semi-autonomous entity, which need not be linked to any specific law school, law faculty, or university.
A further set of projects emerged from the 2019 from the Law’s Futures roundtable held at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law in Chicago, Illinois in September, 2019.
