Elon law included in Chronicle
of Higher Education article
Titled "All Rise. Welcome to Law School," reporter Katherine Mangan's article examines a new trend in legal education that emphasizes hands-on, experiential learning for students. Law schools "have been accused of being stuck in a model that's more than a century old," the article says. "For years, practicing lawyers and judges have complained that law-school graduates lack the skills to represent clients adequately."
The article lists examples of a changing philosophy at several law schools, including Elon:
"Students at Elon University's law school, which opened in 2006, don't have to go far to see a working court in action. The North Carolina Business Court is located right inside the school's building, in Greensboro, and local lawyers and judges serve as student mentors."
