Abstract

Law schools have an obligation to do far more than provide classroom instruction in black letter law. New attorneys fresh out of law school are expected to be productive and effective without an extensive apprenticeship. As a result law schools must provide skills training to complement and provide context for substantive legal instruction, offer training in the art of oral and written communications, ensure law students have a understanding of the spirit and letter of the ethical rules that govern the conduct of attorneys, and must instill a sense of professionalism in law students so they will know how to conduct themselves as they operate in the legal community.

Keywords: Law School, Professionalism, Law Student
