ABA Adopts Resolution on Skills Training

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.

  1. Then what on earth is law school actually preparing people for? It’s ridiculous that the ABA should even have to encourage law schools to better prepare their students.
