As law schools across the country debate the ways to change (or not to change) their curricula to ensure that students are more prepared for practice and are getting the most out of their legal education, there is an opportunity to make some changes that will provide students with an education where both social justice and lawyering skills play a larger role and are more valued. If we act on this opportunity, we will help to build lawyers that are more intellectually and practically well rounded, more dedicated to public service, and more prepared to make the world a more just place.
