Washington and Lee and the New Third Year

Waterjump

I have to admit-- I love the reforms that have been spurred by the Carnegie Report.  Most recently, and perhaps most significantly, Washington and Lee has presented a bold plan to remake their third year into a program on real lawyering.  Using simulations and other tools, they will address both litigation and transactional work.   For full details, see the impressive web site site W & L has set up to explain the new program.

The Washington and Lee plan seems especially well thought-out, and once implemented may serve as a model for others.

VERY interesting and encouraging! Kudos to W&L (though I wonder if the announcement was specifically timed just before new US News rankings are about to generate buzz)

I wonder how long this program took to "enact" and whether/how students were incorporated into the reform dicussion. I also wonder how the "success" of this reform will be judged.
