My thesis today is that the evolution and adoption of best practices in legal education has been retarded by our unique caste system, which tends to categorize both people and teaching methods in ways that are harmful to the outcomes legal education should care most about. Given that we know what best practices in legal education need to resemble, and given that support for the best results of learning cuts across all castes, what is the problem? What are the lines that we need to erase if best practices are to be universally implemented?
