“Practical Learning” is Right on Target!

In her opinion piece in August’s Inside Counsel, Janice Block asserts that today’s law school students need practical skills including Problem Solving, Project Management, Packaging Information and Financial Literacy, among others.  She is dead on!

My book, Start and Grow Your Limited Scope Practice: How to Make Money Serving the “Do It Yourself” Client, was written precisely because law schools do NOT teach enough pragmatics.  Basic details about how to manage time, the importance of market research before opening a new practice, and finding ways to be more efficient with your efforts are sorely needed in any practical component of a legal education.

Hopefully, law schools will take Ms. Block’s and others’ similar comments to heart as they try to remain competitive in the legal education industry.
