Legal education is in a time of dramatic change throughout the world. In the US law schools are facing declines in numbers taking the LSAT and applications to law school where students fear the amount of debt they will incur and the lack of jobs that will let them pay off the debt. In England and Wales university tuition is rising and law jobs have also been declining. Elsewhere legal education is facing the demands of the market and is becoming more practice-oriented at the expense of its academic credibility. In China, for example, the ministries of education and justice have distinct ideas of what the composition of a law degree should be.
