A call for ‘bold change’ in US legal education

The ­­­­­­­Washington State Bar Association has laid the groundwork for a program to train ‘limited-license legal technicians,’ part of an effort to ensure that law schools in the United States are responding to the practical demands of the legal profession.  Degree holders “will have more training and responsibility than paralegals but will not appear in court or negotiate on their clients’ behalf”, says Paula Littlewood, Executive Director of the WSBA and a member of the American Bar Association’s Task Force on the Future of Legal Education.
