Abstract

U.S. legal education is currently experiencing rapid and massive change that is both destabilizing and disconcerting. Across the nation, law schools face enormous challenges and a future filled with programmatic and financial uncertainty. This essay uses the work of urbanist Richard Florida to discuss these challenges and suggest ways to develop paths forward that best benefit law students, the public, and law schools themselves.

Keywords: Legal education, Richard Florida, law student, law school, legal profession, innovation, change, tradition, legal training, diversity, inclusivity, intentional, aspirational, adapt
