Abstract

Since its publication in 1992, virtually everyone who has any opinion about American legal education has been talking about the Mac- Crate Report. Relatively few among this multitude seem actually to have read the report itself. The purpose of this essay is to present an overview of this thoughtful document, along with some thoughts of my own regarding its implications for the future of legal education, particularly its implications for a mandatory prelicensure legal internship.

Keywords: MacCrate Report, Legal Education, Legal Internship
