To do this, Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers:
- Provides a supported platform to promote collaboration among law schools and legal educators;
- Convenes a diverse group of stakeholders to address the challenges, including educators, deans, practitioners, judges, and clients;
- Promotes implementation of effective teaching strategies nationwide; and
- Develops tools to assess student-centered teaching, curricula, and entry-level competencies in law schools.
