Cindy Pham Posted in Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers®

On October 19, 2012, the University of Missouri hosted a symposium which addressed how law schools can better prepare students to practice law. The symposium consisted of scholars, practitioners, and judges who analyzed the needs of stakeholders in legal education and discussed potential solutions as to how law schools can most effectively satisfy those needs. The University of Missouri has made videos of the presentations available online, as well as draft papers and PowerPoints from the symposium.
