How well do law schools today actually prepare law school students for the practice of law? Can the lineage of some of the most controversial law and policy matters be traced to the legal academic agenda?

  • Mr. Walter K. Olson, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute
  • Moderator: Mr. James A. Haynes, Professional Responsibility & Legal Education Practice Group Executive Committee and Baltimore Federalist Society Lawyers Chapter
