A New Path?

There is much debate as to the proper preparation for becoming an attorney.  Personally, I believe that more practical applications of concepts is needed.  Most law students know by their second year (if not sooner) whether they want to focus on civil or criminal law and probably whether they see themselves more as a litigator or transactional attorney.  Why not structure the education to focus on those skills that lawyers will need in their chosen specialties?

This article puts forth the pros and cons of various approaches:
