Law’s Futures 2018 Home


Inaugural Roundtable on Law’s Futures:
New Institutions for Legal Education

Thursday, September 20, 2018 (dinner)
Friday, September 21, 2018
Claremont McKenna College
Claremont, California

This event has concluded. A brief, summary report of the roundtable conversation is available here.

This is the first meeting of an effort to imagine and implement a critical institution of law in the 21st century: legal education. We believe that the time is right to ask and begin to answer foundational and fundamental questions of institutional design, and that our efforts may be important complements to related investigations by the ABA, AALS, and other well-formed professional organizations.

Building on the contributions to the March 2018 Prawfsblawg symposium on Legal Education’s Futures, we hope to continue the productive conversations begun there with an in-person gathering of roughly 10-12 people. The goal is to move those conversations forward, in person, expanding and systematizing the questions and plotting the landscape of next steps.
