News & Record spotlights entrepreneurial approach at Elon Law

A recent News & Record editorial features Elon Law’s emphasis on experiential learning and law school dean Luke Bierman’s perspectives on the future of legal education.

“Elon set out to fashion a ‘law school with a difference,’ and it has followed that vision, focusing on leadership development, service and the Bierman specialty of ‘experiential learning,’” the June 29 News & Record editorial states. “That’s a relatively new concept for law schools although common in other professional programs where students frequently get off campus for internships and other practical experiences. Elon law students do it, too, working with local lawyers or in any of the several clinics the school operates to provide legal services to the community.”

The editorial notes Bierman’s leadership background in experiential education in law and features his perspectives on future goals for the law school.

“There are some fundamental changes in legal education coming,” Bierman states in the editorial. “We need to be a leader in whatever those changes will be.”
