Our friends Carolyn Wise and Brian Dalton at Vault.com had an interesting (if unintentional) debate this week about the preparedness of law school grads for the legal job market. We’ve re-posted with their permission.
Law students took a beating in a recent Chicago Lawyer roundtable of law school deans. It should come as no surprise that, because of the economy, students and soon-to-be graduates are having a ton of trouble finding legal jobs. To help, schools have started reaching out and looking into how to make their students better employees and, by extension, better candidates.
