The National Jurist produces list of "most innovative law school"

Via e-mail, I received word of this new annoucement from The National Jurist:

Law schools are pushing the boundaries of the traditional law school model and experimenting at a level that legal education has not seen for several years, a new story reveals.

The National Jurist invited every law school in the U.S. to submit a nomination for how it is innovating its curriculum. More than 40 schools responded, showing that schools are experimenting with boot camps, mentoring programs, technology and programs that mirror the medical school model.

“We were surprised and impressed by the level of innovation today,” said Jack Crittenden, Editor In Chief of The National Jurist. “Legal educators are no longer just talking about change — they are taking the first steps to make it happen.”...

The National Jurist will publish all of the honorees in the Back to School issue of preLaw magazine, due out in late August.  It will also publish details about each school on its website in August.  Here is the list in alphabetical order:

  • Elon University School of Law
  • Hamline University School of Law
  • Indiana University Maurer School of Law
  • Loyola Law School Los Angeles
  • New York Law School
  • Ohio Northern University
  • Pennsylvania State University The Dickinson School of Law
  • Phoenix School of Law
  • Stanford Law School
  • Southwestern Law School
  • Syracuse University College of Law
  • Thomas Jefferson School of Law
  • Tulane University Law School
  • University of Arkansas at Little Rock
  • University of Denver Sturm College of Law
  • University of District of Columbia
  • University of Hawai’i
  • University of Illinois College of Law
  • University of North Carolina
  • University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

In part because necessity is the mother of invention, I am not surprised to see on this list a number of schools that are surely struggling in the new tighter market for law jobs and law students. That said, I am looking forward to seeing the forthcoming full National Jurist article discussing just what makes these 20 schools especially innovative.

Very few counters lack seams. In stone with veining, you may be able to hide a seam along a vein.

It can show the interviewer if this person is a natural leader or can get impatient in lengthy explanations. It’s best if the activity being explained is truly one the interviewer does not know how to do.
