Law’s Futures 2019 Home

2019 Roundtable on Law’s Futures

Thursday, September 26, 2019 (dinner) and Friday, September 27, 2019
Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Chicago, Illinois

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

The Law’s Futures roundtables build on the contributions to an online symposium on Legal Education’s Futures held at Prawsblawg in March 2018. We hope to continue the productive conversations begun there with in-person gatherings. The goal is to move those conversations forward, in person, expanding and systematizing the questions and plotting the landscape of next steps. Beyond innovations and improvements in particular programs and in particular schools, what should legal education and the legal profession look like in the decades to come, and how can we move concretely from present conditions to implementation?
