Welcome to a notable new contributing editor

Wegnerjudithwelch_2I am extraordinarily pleased to announce that Judith Welch Wegner, who served as Dean of the University of North Carolina School of Law for a decade, has now joined LSI as a contributing editor.  This is a particularly exciting addition for LSI because, as her bio notes, Judith "recently completed a research leave as Senior Scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and has been principal investigator on the Foundation's major study on legal education." 

The Carnegie Foundation's report, entitled Educating Lawyers: Preparation for the Profession of Law, has been a subject of great interest to the LSI bogging team.  Just a few of our reactions and thoughts to the report can be found here and here and here and here and here and here

I am very much looking forward to anything Judith has to say in this space about the Carnegie report and the initial reactions it has generated within the legal academy.  One of the many remarkable features of the report is that only one of the principal authors (namely Judith) is a lawyer.  I would be especially interested to hear from Judith about how non-lawyers with a background in education theory and practice reacted to learning about the distinctive ways of law school.
