This article discusses Holloway and Friedland’s vision of the law school of 2025, with a focus on the need for technology education and a cultural shift in the legal Academy and the law school curriculum. It surveys the landscape of millennials as both students and employees, briefly describing their strengths and weaknesses in both arenas. Finally, this article brings the discussion together, describing benefits the law school of 2025 will receive by welcoming Millennials into the Academy, and will predict the changes legal education can expect with an innovative group of narcissists leading the way.
