ABA Issues Draft Report on Law School Overhaul

The ABA Task Force on Legal Education has recommended sweeping changes to how law students prepare to become lawyers, MLive reports. In a draft report issued today, the task force calls for serious re-engineering of how law schools are priced and financed. The concept of decreasing law school from three years to two in order to reduce student loan debt is currently a hot-button topic of discussion among the legal education sector, but the report does not engage the idea or suggest specific changes to the law school funding model. A final report will be issued after additional discussion about the draft recommendations.
