Lincoln Memorial University’s Duncan School of Law gets a shout-out in a recent issue of SE Texas Record, for its practical approach as "an unusual school that offers a sharp contrast to the prevailing model." Mark Pulliam writes about the prevailing academic paradigm and alternatives, of which he says LMU is one. "I assumed an 'upstart' school would lack establishment respectability, but was surprised to learn otherwise," he writes. Impressed with LMU’s attraction for non-traditional students, he points out it "emphasizes skills-based instruction, and seeks to train lawyers who will service the legal needs of ordinary people in rural areas of the state, primarily as solo practitioners or attorneys working at small firms."
