Elon law included in Chronicle of Higher Education article
An article on hands-on learning in legal education in the forthcoming Jan. 11 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education includes Elon University School of Law.

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."
