Yesterday the ABA adopted a tepid resolution encouraging law schools to, perhaps, if they want to, give their students more training for the actual practice of law by developing “capstone” courses and clinics. Unfortunately, the resolution expressly states only that these courses should provide students with “client contact” (which is good) and “court appearances” (which is quixotic). No mention of the actual skills that lawyers need.
